CUSTOMER USE & RESERVOIR ACCOUNTING SUMMARY AVAILABLE
The Brazos River Authority has posted a graphic representation and summary of customer water usage and an accounting of reservoir storage for the 2014 calendar year.
The graphic is a comprehensive representation of water supply use by BRA long and short-term customers. It also presents an easy to understand graphic representation of the water supply within each reservoir for the 2014 calendar year including inflows, supply use, environmental releases, and representation of the amount of water lost to evaporation for the 12-month period.
“Though this information has always been available to the public upon request, it has not been available in a comprehensive graphic format with the information in one location,” said Brad Brunett, water services manager for the BRA. “We hope this graphic will help to answer some of the many questions posed by the public.”
The graphic summary is available in portable document format (pdf) that may be printed. There is also an accompanying explanation document that answers basic questions about the information and provides term definitions.
