Heavy rainfall eliminates urgency to withhold water
Houston — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; a Central Texas river authority is putting the brakes on an emergency plan to suspend the flow of water into Matagorda Bay.
The Lower Colorado River Authority told state regulators Wednesday that heavy rainfall had eliminated the urgency to withhold water from the bay for the benefit of upstream users.
