Drought Stage History
Discharge Rate Measurement Locations
The Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District consists of 2 Regions that rely on different measures for determining drought status.
The northern region, Region K, drought status is determined by the Pedernales River discharge rate and the Henly Church well water level.
The southern region, Region L, drought status is determined by the Blanco River discharge rate, Jacob's well discharge rate and the Mt. Baldy well water level.
Graphs provided by USGS are shown below for the primary and secondary rivers and springs in the district.
