Unless there is a substantial amount of rainfall in December (which is highly unlikely), 2008 will go down as the second-driest year in the history of the city. It may take a minute for that to sink in, but the proof is in the pudding. A quick look at the San Antonio Water System's Aquifer Level and Stats Page gives some grim stats. The total rainfall to date for 2008 is 13.46". The normal is 31.02", meaning we have had less than half the normal rainfall for our area.
So what does this mean for the Aquifer, and the city? There is always a plan, as I have noted in my article about San Antonio Water Rights and Usage.
