Drought Conditions Are Upon Us

******Clearwater UWCD is concerned that drought conditions are upon us. If no measurable rainfall is experienced by June 22, then all well owners producing from the Edwards BFZ aquifer and the Trinity aquifer will need to voluntarily curtail production by 10%.*******

TWDB: Taking Control of Water Loss

With Texas’ population increasing and water supplies decreasing over the next 50 years, controlling water loss is a key strategy that utilities (and homeowners) can implement to help ensure water supplies are being managed as efficiently as possible. Identifying water loss in a system is one of a utility’s first lines of defense, and the Texas Water Development Board’s (TWDB) Water Loss Audit is an important tool to help utilities do just that.

The Texas Legislature requires all retail public water suppliers to submit a water loss audit once every five years. The next five-year survey is due to the TWDB on May 1, 2021, for the year 2020. However, any retail water supplier that has an active financial obligation with the TWDB or has more than 3,300 connections is required to submit a water loss audit annually. That said, although it is a requirement for utilities to complete, it’s also an opportunity for them to better know and understand their systems. The audit will help a utility understand where and how much water is being lost from the distribution system and provide a baseline to track and improve water loss control.
