Farmers down stream and people living on the lakes are trying to figure out the best way to deal with the drought and water control. Recently the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality agreed to cut off water deliveries to most rice farmers in the Lower Colorado River Basin for the third straight year as the lakes in central Texas are only 38 percent full.
