According to the Texas Water Development Board, recent rainfall experienced throughout the state improved drought conditions in the lower Rio Grande Valley.

The statement released by the board adds, “The prognosis for more rain over the next week is promising, so perhaps we can reverse downward reservoir trends sooner rather than later.”

A graphic released by the Water Development Board says that 58 percent of the state is currently considered to be in moderate to exceptional drought.
