Worst Drought since the 50s

Llano News-June 22, 2011 Tyson Broad Will the Llano River soon cease to flow? If the past can predict the future, the answer is “probably yes”. The last time zero flow was recorded at the US Geological Survey (USGS) gauge at Llano was on July 20 and 21, 1984. Twenty years before that, zero flow was recorded for 19 days in July, 1964. The flow on June 22 in those years was 23 cubic feet per second (cfs), compared to the 3 cfs currently in the river. (A cubic foot is about 7.5 gallons) This spring’s record heat and wind certainly have had an impact on flows, but so have drought conditions for three of the last four years. On average, the annual flow of the Llano River at Llano is 382 cfs. Si
