What will we all do? I made a difference

The Austin area is in an extreme drought.

This is a serious challenge our community must address. As your publicly owned water utility, we want to share this information about the drought, conservation, how Austin Water is working to protect your water supply and how you can be part of the effort to meet this historic challenge.   I can do something!








Drinking Water and the Drought
Austin’s source for drinking water is the Colorado River, more specifically the Highland Lakes system. Austin currently draws its drinking water from Lake Austin. The water Austin uses is replaced by water flowing through and from our region’s supply reservoirs, lakes Buchanan and Travis. These lakes are managed by the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA).
Currently, the combined storage in lakes Buchanan and Travis is at one of the lowest points in the history of the lakes. Recent rains have pushed back the likelihood of hitting the drought of record until February 2014.  The lowest point ever was 621,221 acre-feet which occurred on September 9, 1952, during the “Drought of Record.”  I can do something!

What can I do?  What can we do?  We can do a lot!


Thank you Austin
Austin has a goal of reaching 140 gallons used per person per day by 2020. The numbers in the water drops above represent gallons per capita per day (GPCD). Implementation of rigorous conservation efforts and strong citizen response have resulted in the GPCD dropping.
Consider your water use habits and think how you can use less. Below are links for conservation tips, information on programs,rebates and incentives. Please follow the City’s conservation restrictions, which were created with extensive public input and approved by City Council.  I did something!  We did something!  LETS KEEP DOING SOMETHING!!
