Only about 25 percent of our water comes from the ground, well water. The other three quarters comes from lakes – Boerne City Lake and Canyon Lake through GBRA (Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority). Our GBRA water is basically the water we serve for living purposes, such as laundry, washing dishes, and bathing. It comes on a constant flow basis all year long; it’s the water we use all through the winter and through the summer. Our summertime peak water production, which is primarily irrigation of lawns and landscaping, comes from a combination of Boerne City Lake water and well water.
In times of drought or in curtailment from the Cow Creek Water Conservation District there is just less water available from wells. So, we ask our customers to conserve because we are not as able to achieve peak production.
