DONíT PICK UP HITCHHIKERS THIS BOATING SEASON
You probably wouldnít consider picking up a hitchhiker from a seedy part of town and bringing them home to create mayhem in your neighborhood. Would you consider picking up hitchhikers at the lake that could create havoc on your drinking water and cost you a great deal of money?  Obviously the answer is no; but, most people donít know they could be doing just that.
 
Zebra mussels are an invasive species that recently reared their ugly bi-valves in Brazos basin reservoirs. They travel by hitching a ride on unsuspecting boats as they are moved from infested waterbodies to a new location. The result is clogged water intakes that cost cities millions to clean or replace with the costs eventually passed on to consumers.
 
You can help stop the spread of these invasive mollusks simply by cleaning your boat before venturing into a new area.  For more, click here 

DURING HEAVY RAINS,
TURN AROUND, DON'T DROWN!
With heavy rains returning to the Brazos River basin, be mindful of the risks of sudden flooding. The Brazos River Authority urges Texans to watch for potential flooding - whether at home, on the road, or visiting one of the state's many beautiful lakes or streams. For more, click here.
CHANGE IN DROUGHT CONTINGENCY STATUS FOR BRAZOS BASIN LIKELY
As a result of the recent rainfall and improved reservoir conditions, there will likely be some downgrades to the drought declarations currently in place. Currently the entire BRA System of reservoirs is under a Stage I drought status with individual reservoirs standing at various drought stages.  Drought status conditions are defined in the BRAís Drought Contingency Plan and determine the targeted amount of reduction in water supply use set for water contract holders.  The BRA will evaluate the drought statuses of each of the reservoirs once runoff and rainfall subside.
