Lake Meredith water source at zero percent capacity

Texas lakes continue to dry up. Texas Parks and Wildlife on Thursday released a statement saying "Lake Meredith is listed at zero percent capacity."

What little water is left is being pumped out to Lubbock and ten other West Texas cities. After that we've got underground well water and nothing else until Lake Alan Henry comes online. This is supposed to happen in 2012 when the major pipeline project is finished.

Here's the good news from Texas Parks and Wildlife: "Lake Alan Henry is the one bright spot in the high plains, as it is about 86 percent full."
