Even with the recent rain in Brown County, the effects of the drought are still felt.
With lake levels decreasing, changes may be on the horizon with the drought contingency plan.
Brown County Water Improvement District general manager, Dennis Spinks, say Lake Brownwood is falling about one tenth of a foot every four days.
"We've had rains on the watershed, but the rains have not been sufficient to have any runoff that would come down to the lake, so we are still declining," Spinks says.
Spinks says conserving water is no longer an option.
"Essentially Lake Brownwood is the only source of water for Brown County at this point, and if it goes dry or we have to ration water, it can be devastating to the community."
Without a significant amount of rain, Brown County will move to Stage 4 of the drought contingency plan by the 1st of September.
Stage 4 means no outdoor watering.
The lake will have to drop three more feet for Stage 4 to take effect.
Currently, the lake is at about 54 percent capacity.
Since it's lowest point last October, the lake has risen four to five feet.
