Record Rain Fails to Fill South Pool

San Angelo's water situation improved so dramatically that City Council nixed Level III Drought restrictions.  Oddly, the North Pool received 6,172 acre feet, over 75% of Twin Buttes overall volume increase of 8,101 acre feet.

The South Pool received 1,929 acre feet, bringing its volume back to 2,770 acre feet.  Might I remind City Councilman Paul Alexander of his promise, "A medium rain will refill the South Pool overnight."  We had much more than a medium rain.

While the South Pool received a significant amount of water, it didn't come close to refilling.  Failure of a theory/prediction requires its modification.
