The Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) has a Drought Contingency Plan (DCP) in place for wholesale customers of Canyon Reservoir in order to safeguard the water supply for the communities it serves.
With Canyon Reservoir elevation below 890’ msl, GBRA remains in Stage 2 moderate water shortage conditions for wholesale raw water customers. Canyon Reservoir is currently at 61% of water storage capacity. Without additional inflow or rain, Canyon’s elevation is expected to continue to decline.
The goal of Stage 2 is to achieve a voluntary 10% reduction in comparison to the average monthly usage for this time period of the calendar year, and to request wholesale customers initiate measures to reduce non-essential use. As part of the DCP, we will continue to update our wholesale raw water customers of drought stage conditions on a weekly basis.
Impacted wholesale customers will continue to receive direct notification from GBRA prior to the initiation of the next drought stage. View the drought contingency plan below.
