February 24, 2018 Flood Monitoring Update 2100

February 24th, 2018|

TRWD flood monitoring staff continues to monitor reservoir conditions 24 hours a day.  The latest update of the conditions at the District reservoirs is as follows:

  • Lake Bridgeport and Richland-Chambers are not expected to reach conservation level at this time.
  • Eagle Mountain Lake surpassed conservation level this afternoon.  This will engage the uncontrolled service spillway for a low level discharge (<500 cfs).  The reservoir level will continue to be monitored, and controlled releases will be made as necessary to maintain a safe operating level.
  • Cedar Creek is above conservation, and controlled flood discharges have continued.

Please call the Flood Hotline for further information.

February 22, 2018 General Statement of Monitoring Conditions

February 22nd, 2018|

TRWD is monitoring the precipitation and resulting runoff in the District reservoir watersheds over the past few days.  A graphic showing the total rainfall from this event starting on Tuesday (2/20)  up to 7 AM this morning is shown below.  Additional rainfall is anticipated today through Saturday.  District staff is currently monitoring conditions 24 hours a day. In the event that reservoir levels dictate flood discharge operations, regular updates on the Flood Blog will be posted.  At this time District flood monitoring staff is not expecting Lake Bridgeport or Richland-Chambers Reservoirs to reach conservation level.  It is possible that Eagle Mountain Lake and Cedar Creek Reservoir reach conservation level in the next few days.  Current estimates do not show this happening at either reservoir until Saturday (2/24).  If updated forecasts indicate this to occur sooner than Saturday, the Flood Blog will be updated.

Please call the Flood Hotline for further information.

TRWD receives 2017 John Ivey Higher Standards Award

January 4th, 2017|

In September, TRWD board member Leah King accepted the 2017 John Ivey Higher Standards Award on behalf of TRWD. The award honored the district’s efforts to address flood damage reduction with the Trinity River Common Vision and Corridor Development Certificate program.

The program won the award for its successful long-term cooperative efforts to address flood damage reduction by establishing and enforcing higher standards for development along the Trinity River corridor.

The Trinity River Common Vision program is a partnership that dates back to the mid-1980’s. The program has the main goal of stabilizing flood risk along the Trinity River Corridor, while allowing development to continue without reducing flood storage capacity.

TRWD is a member of this program along with the cities of Arlington, Carrolton, Coppell, Dallas, Farmers Branch, Fort Worth, Grand Prairie, Irving, and Lewisville; the counties of Dallas, Denton and Tarrant; Trinity River Authority; Federal Emergency Management Agency Region 6; Texas Water Development Board; The North Central Texas Council of Governments; and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
