BURNET, TX - MARCH 12: The Buchanan dam, one of the control points for water going south to the rice farmers, is seen on March 12, 2014 in Burnet, Texas. 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.
