The Brazos River Authority has informed customers accessing water from Lakes Possum Kingdom, Granbury, Whitney, Proctor and Georgetown that a Stage 1 Drought Watch has been declared.

The drought watch is the result of prolonged dry weather conditions in the upper portions of the Brazos basin and is a response to new drought trigger levels established by the BRA’s updated Drought Contingency Plan approved by the BRA Board of Directors on Oct. 29.
