City Solicits Bids for Twin Buttes Pumping

The City of San Angelo issue an RFP for Lake Pumping systems at Twin Buttes for both the North and South Pools.  Recent rains increased the North Pool by one third of a foot.  September can bring rain and significant runoff could delay the need for pumps. 

Gajeske provided pumps for the last two Twin Buttes pumping operations.  They did not attend the pre-bid meeting on August 3rd.  Odessa Pumps and Barco pump did attend. 

City Council will entertain pumping but it is not on the August 21, 2018 agenda.

Ivie to Get Runoff

Lake Ivie is fed by the Concho and Colorado Rivers and both are running as a result of today's rain.  The South Concho at Christoval is flowing at 37 cubic feet per second.  Its flow will benefit the South Pool at Twin Buttes.  We are grateful for today's blessing and pray for water for our lakes.

Update 8-13-18:   The water made it to Paint Rock.  Last Concho River reading showed 252 cubic feet per second of flow.  Next stop Lake Ivie!
