LCRA to ask State for emergency drought relief in 2014

The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) will ask the state for permission to cut off Highland Lakes water to most farmers in 2014 unless the combined storage of Lakes Buchanan and Travis improves significantly by March 1. Without additional rain, 2014 would be the third year in a row, and only the third time in LCRA's history, that most farmers would go without water from the Highland Lakes.
