Episode Narrative Severe to extreme drought continued to grip much of the Big Country, western Concho Valley and the Northern Edwards Plateau. Exceptional drought continued to plague Fisher and Haskell Counties. The community of Robert Lee continues to build a pipe line that will bring water into the community from the Oak Creek Reservoir and nearby groundwater sources. Surface water supplies are still low due to limited runoff from rainfall. The City of San Angelo enacted drought level two water restrictions on April 17, since there is 18 months of water left. Several other cities like Abilene and Brownwood have also enacted water restrictions because of the dwindling water supply.

Most oats and wheat were being either grazed out or baled instead of being harvested for grain. Rangeland and pasture conditions started to decline because of lack of rain for the last few weeks.
Event Narrative The U.S. Drought Monitor indicated severe drought conditions across Throckmorton County during April.
