SAN ANTONIO -- This week's rain is nothing but good for the Edwards Aquifer.
In fact, meteorologist Adam Krueger said that is has risen over 10 feet.
But all this rain is just not enough to lift water restrictions. Most of the rain fell over the aquifer's recharge zone. Some received as much as 10 inches and caused flooding.
With current water restrictions, the rule is water on your designated day once a week. The designation is according to your house number between 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. The ordinance is based on a 10 day average.
It would need to hit that 10 day average for 15 days to come out of restrictions.
San Antonio Water Systems said now is the time for homeowners to save some money on their water bill.
"Because we’ve gotten all this wonderful rain and because the temperatures are cooler your plants are not going to need as much water. So it’s a great opportunity to turn off the sprinkler system, leave it alone and depending on if the temperatures rebound you could have as much as 2 weeks without running a sprinkler system," said Anne Hayden of SAWS.
SAWS offers garden-style water saver coupons for the fall. It's a discount for putting in plants or hardscape that won’t be affected by the drought conditions.
