As recent observations of stream flow and drought index data have revealed an increasingly alarming trend in the South Central Texas/Middle Texas Coast region, SABP has compiled the most recent data into a series of images illustrating the current status of drought conditions and stream flow, as well as salinity at TWDB’s “DELTA” water quality monitoring station in San Antonio Bay, near Seadrift, TX.

San Antonio Bay Drought Watch
5/27/2021 Continuing the last few weeks’ look at streamflow measured at the USGS gage on the Guadalupe River at Victoria — as a general indicator of streamflow headed for San Antonio Bay — we see that another high flow event is occurring as I write this. It has been about one month since the rains and runoff began and we’re now seeing the third time since mid-April when the flow has jumped above the median flows for this period — with this third, present event, an order of magnitude greater than the first “high-flow” event at the end of April.
