“The problem is not that usage is up,” said Bill Dupler, the county’s deputy administrator.
“The problem is that there’s no rain in the basin filling the reservoir.”

The 1300-acre reservoir had dropped to 52 inches below full by last week. Earlier last week, a drought warning was issued for the entire Water Basin by the state Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).

To see the below situation in my own back yard and to foresee its implications is a sick feeling.
These people want to build rock gardens, I'm not particularly fond of it but then again it doesn't use any water.
Need to pipe in some water from the east and water away.....
