New Website Updates Texas Drought Conditions

advertisement

People concerned about the lingering Texas drought have another tool to track water resources.

The Texas Water Development Board has announced a new drought website --  http://www.waterdatafortexas.org/drought/

Officials said the site, unveiled Wednesday, brings together updated resources, links, data and the analysis of conditions linked to the drought affecting Texas since 2011. The website automatically downloads or calculates drought-related information from national and state resources on a daily basis.

The Texas Water Development Board provides water-related information, assists with regional planning and helps with preparing a statewide water plan.

Voters on Nov. 5 will consider a proposed amendment to the Texas Constitution that would use $2 billion from the state's Rainy Day fund to finance major water infrastructure projects.
