Tracking area reservoir levels
TEXAS — The most intense drought in Texas history lowered reservoir levels around the state, stirring widespread concern about water shortages. By April 2012 many had bounced back, particularly in Central and East Texas, after those areas saw an unusually rainy spring. But many West Texas levels remain very low.
Using data collected from the Texas Water Development Board's reservoir status tracker, The Texas Tribune has built a tool that visualizes the current levels of the state's reservoirs.
