City Informs Council of Bountiful Water Supplies

City staff presented several slides showing San Angelo's rainfall blessing which began in September of last year.  As a result the city has 5.5 years of water supply and that's with very conservative assumptions.

Water Utilities Director Allison Strube informed Council that tributaries for Twin Buttes and O.H. Ivie continue adding water to those lakes.  Twin Buttes holds 37.3 billion gallons.  Water is priced in 1,000 gallon increments.  The City has 37.3 million saleable units in Twin Buttes as of January 1.  That's significant inventory.
