February 27, 2018 Flood Monitoring Update

By February 27, 2018

TRWD flood monitoring staff continues to monitor reservoir conditions 24 hours a day. There is rainfall in the forecast for today and tomorrow.  Flood monitoring staff is closely watching these storms for any impact to the District reservoirs.  The latest update of the conditions at the District reservoirs is as follows:

  • Lake Bridgeport and Richland-Chambers Reservoir are not expected to reach conservation level at this time.
  • Eagle Mountain Lake is above conservation level.  Controlled discharges are ongoing.  These discharges are approximately 500 cfs.
  • Cedar Creek Reservoir is still above conservation level, however the reservoir level continues to recede with the ongoing controlled discharges.  These controlled discharges will continue until the reservoir level nears conservation.
  • Reservoir levels and inflows will continue to be monitored to maintain the reservoirs at a safe operating level.

Please call the Flood Hotline for further information.
