Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: Saturday will be the milder of the two days. Sun and clouds will be the rule with early weekend highs in the mid 80s. Back to the low to mid 90s on Sunday!
NEW BRAUNFELS (July 27, 2013)--The persistent drought has forced New Braunfels Mayor Gale Pospisil to limit homeowners to using sprinklers or irrigation systems only once every two weeks.
A well that monitors the city's water source, the Edward Aquifer, dropped nearly a foot on Friday, more than 5 feet below the level at this time last year and more than 21 feet below the average.
Lawn watering was already limited to once a week.
The first week without any sprinkler use begins Aug. 19.
