A small central Texas community has begun trucking in thousands of gallons of water to avoid running dry during the state's historic drought, a water official said.
Two trucks filled with about 8,000 gallons of water reached Spicewood Beach Monday afternoon and the precious liquid was immediately pumped into community water tanks.
"The community could be trucking for two weeks or two months, it just depends on the weather," according to Lower Colorado River Association spokeswoman Clara Tuma. "It's raining right now, though."
The town is under a Stage 4 water emergency - the most severe level - and it won't ease until the town gets more rain over an extended period of time.FULL STORY
