Playa lakes could help boost water supply

Posted: Updated:

Area playa lakes catching water after the recent rain could benefit us in several ways.

Texas AgriLife agents say playa lakes could help increase our area's aquifer water supply since they catch a lot of water from rain and potential flooding.

Agents also say over the past few years, some people have started to farm in playas because of the drought.

And these bodies of water could also serve as wildlife watering homes for birds, deer and antelope.

Agents say playa lakes help keep moisture levels up increasing the possibility of more rain in our area.
