Reservoir Monitoring Update – March 29, 2018

March 29th, 2018|

TRWD staff continues to monitor conditions in the District reservoir watersheds 24 hours a day.  The rainfall has let up and District staff is monitoring the stream gauges to see how much of that rainfall has turned into runoff.  Currently the West Fork Trinity River near Jacksboro gauge is slowly increasing as rain that fell Monday night in Archer and Young Counties makes its way downstream.  This will eventually be inflow for Lake Bridgeport.  It is still too early to tell if there will be enough inflow for Lake Bridgeport to reach conservation level, but we will know more in the coming days.  Richland-Chambers Reservoir has increased  just over 2 inches in the past 24-hours and is looking like it will reach conservation or at least come very close in the coming days.  Please check back during this event for further updates.

Reservoir Monitoring Update – March 27, 2018

March 27th, 2018|

TRWD staff continues to monitor conditions in the District reservoir watersheds 24 hours a day.  The past 24 hours have brought a varying amount of rainfall across the Lake Bridgeport and Eagle Mountain Lake watersheds.  A map displaying the radar-estimated rainfall depths along with rain gauge observations for the District area of interest is displayed below.  The greatest rainfall totals have been in the headwaters of the Lake Bridgeport watershed near Antelope.  This water will not make it to Lake Bridgeport for 2-4 days if it makes it at all due to infiltration and channel losses.  Elsewhere, there has been about an inch of rainfall.  This has not been enough to generate significant runoff at this time, but this could change and District staff will be watching the stream gauges closely over the next few days.  The eastern reservoirs have received little to no rain so far, but this is expected to change this afternoon through tomorrow afternoon according National Weather Service guidance.  Please check back during this event for further updates.

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.
