South Pool Takes Two Months to Pump Empty
San Angelo City Council will consider asking Gajeske Inc., the winning bidder, to start pumping water from the South Pool of Twin Buttes into the North Pool. The picture above and below were taken at the South Pool today.
Water continues flowing through the Equalization Channel, as can be seen below:
Two months after pumping commences, without any runoff, the South Pool may be a mere puddle. Pray for rain.
Update 6-19-12: City Council approved emptying the South Pool with pumping starting August 1. With no rain the South Pool should be gone by October 1.
