The City and LCRA
The water Pflugerville pumps out of the Colorado River and into Lake Pflugerville actually starts in the Highland Lakes - Buchanan, Inks, LBJ, Marble Falls, Travis, and Austin. During a time of drought, the water that is released from Buchanan and Travis does not replenish easily due to the lack of rain, evaporation, and runoff, therefore severely lowering the lake levels.
Therefore, if the LCRA implements a water rationing program, all entities receiving water from the lower Colorado River are directly affected and have to implement the same program, including the City of Pflugerville.
