The popular area closed to swimming late last summer because drought conditions made the water too shallow and unsafe for swimming.

Jacob’s Well Natural Area, also in Wimberley, announced this week that its summer season has been suspended due to low water levels.

The latest U.S. Drought Monitor shows drought conditions have improved in Hays County since last summer when it was classified as having “exceptional drought” conditions. The northwest part of the county is now classified as “moderate” while the southeast part is experiencing “severe drought” conditions.
