Report: Guadalupe River Going Dry
Most of South Texas is still trying to recover from the devastating three-year drought, with not much relief in sight. As a result, lakes, rivers, creeks and streams are quickly losing water volume. A new report on My San Antonio.com says the Guadalupe River is the driest it has been in more than fifty years. This has implications well beyond limiting fishing, kayaking, and other “on-the-river” recreational activities; the river is a vital source of drinking and irrigation water for many towns, farms and ranches in the Golden Crescent and Coastal Bend regions.
According to the report, “The river is so low that the Guadalupe River State Park had to shut off water to toilets and showers this week, but will resupply two campgrounds by the weekend.”
