When I was out recently scouting for wildflower locations, I found myself back at Lake Buchanan and decided to continue my series of the effects of the drought in central Texas. This is the southern area of the lake near Buchanan Dam. I have my shot set up here, many hundreds of yards from the shore and boat ramp near a granite outcropping that would normally be submerged. - @aaronbates #igtexas #hillcountry #drought #txdrought #lale

#waterwednesday Saw this sprinkler around 7pm tonight at the #Mueller development. As the days get hotter, watering at NIGHT is best. #Austin & #LCRA are enforcing Stage 2 drought restrictions so everyone should water once a week between 10PM - 7AM!! Call 311 OR 512-974-2000 to report #waterwaste! #snitch #inagoodway #txdrought #txwater #conserve

#waterwednesday See that white pipe going into the water? Any water under, through, or on a homeowner's property is legally their's under the #texas #riparian law. They can take as much as they want without metering use! Look for these pipes coming from houses next time you're on a #lake or #river! #conserve #texaswaterlaw #txwater #txdrought #laketravis

#waterwednesday I truly believe #education is the primary way we will change our water habits. #LCRA has a plan to secure an additional 100,000 acre-feet of water by 2017. With #Austin growing so quickly, we may need more, sooner. #txdrought #txwater #raindance #watersupply #coloradoriver #conserve #sustainability

Sooo I'm starting a weekly #waterwednesday post bc I love #txwater and you should too! For my inaugural post: This area is currently in its 7th #drought year. In 2011, the Texas Colorado River inflows were the LOWEST in HISTORY. Only 10 percent of the annual average. #nofilter #greenbelt #lcra #txdrought #conserve #waterislife

59nationalparks : So it's the Colorado River in #Texas right? I recall that it is pretty long.
aaronbates : @59nationalparks Yes, the Colorado River in TX starts in northwest Texas and empties into the Gulf near Houston. It's over half the length as the Colorado River through the southwest.
cgdoody : Where did you take this shot? I live in Killeen
aaronbates : @cgdoody this is a section of the Colorado River in Burnet County, outside Austin

πŸ“#abp_river This small series was from a while back, last year. I just wanted to revisit them again :) Here, the sun sets on the Colorado River as it flows through Burnet County, Texas. Due to the drought, the water levels are low, but it's still a nice part of the River to visit.
