Looks like we're there. Level one starts when the aquifer hits 660. We're at 660.8 today. The link above has your watering day listed.

Has to drop below 660... it'll be a very very close call if we get there whether or not we get the rain this weekend.

I tried a rain dance once, but instead of rain I got laughs.

Yep... unfortunately the added heat and lack of humidity yesterday gave us that one final push to bring the aquifer at the J-17 well down to 660.0ft above sea level exactly.

It was gonna be a close call, but we got the short end of the stick.
