new DWS page

I added a new DWS page to use in some national marketing. I wanted to be able to reference this page and make sure people check the water level before planning any trips to Austin.

More Color added

In the final hours of editing, I made cosmetic changes to add more color on the pages,  turning the icons dark blue-purple and the footnotes burnt-red-orange.  This breaks up big blocks of crowded black text and helps people ignore or locate the icons and footnotes.
