Water in Medina Lake drops to new low
Bandera County Park officials close off Medina Lake
SAN ANTONIO - Medina Lake, a once popular destination, is completely isolated this Easter Sunday.
The lake is now at 6.6 percent of its capacity, which is a new low.
The lake is so low that Bandera County Park officials have closed off the entire area, preventing anyone from having any access to the lake.
Government data shows that Medina Lake is in an extreme drought and conditions worsen with each day that passes.
The lake was initially built for farmers, but it is so low now, it is virtually impossible to get any water out of the lake.
Some people made the trip out to Bandera County on Sunday just to see how bad the drought had gotten.
Sue Otto said she was pretty shocked to see Medina Lake in this shape.
"Since we work resorts through the year, I wanted to see exactly what it was," said Otto. "It must be devastating for all of the resorts and all of the support services for people who come here as tourists to look at. It's just really sad to see this."
It rained some Sunday afternoon, but not nearly enough to make any kind of dent in the levels.
