Just want to let everyone know I am running a Labor Day Special Two-Tank charter for $30 on Saturday and Sunday. Want to do a night dive? A special charter is going on Saturday night for a two-tank sunset/night dive. Space is still available.
"As of 8 a.m. Aug. 5, Lake Travis was at 636.49 feet above mean sea level (msl). That places the lake below its previous third-lowest all-time elevation, 636.58 feet (msl), which was set in October 1984 at the end of a severe drought. The lake is almost 30 feet below its average elevation for August.
Barring significant rainfall, the lake will continue to drop at the rate of about a foot or more a week during the next several weeks, falling to as low as 630 feet msl by Sept. 1. That would still be higher than Travis’ second-lowest elevation of 615.02 feet msl set in November 1963 and its all-time low of 614.18 set in August 1951."
Sept 10th, 2009 Lake Lvl = 630.1
Current level = 630.5
Any bets that the lake has 'turned', so to speak?
In other good news. Aquifer levels are coming up too. The San Marcos Springs flow rate has been trending upward since the 8th, from a low of 85ish to the current flow rate of 95. There was even a spike of 100 cfs on the 10th. Long may it rain.
