    Our situation is about the same the lakes went down about 50% a couple years ago and haven't come back at all. The little bit of good news is that this past year we got enough rain to keep the lakes steady. Our state has reduced water for rice farmers to the south of us. They are also putting plans in place to increase capacity beyond the lakes. Trouble is we need rain.

    Water is not cheap here that is for sure and there is a reason for it just like the picture shown above. It is amazing on the water that is WASTED by some home owners. I have one property that is 50K of St. Augustine which they insist on watering 4 days a week because they neighbors do it. There is roughly 100 homes in this community that do it, drives me nuts.

    Somewhat the same amount of waste here on the lakes where folks water every other day....too many people do not understand about watering efficiently...though, conservation will only go so far. Eventually we here in central Texas will need to make a plan to pipe water in to continue growing...unavoidable
