February 24, 2018 Flood Monitoring Update 2100

By February 25, 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.


If prompted to leave a message, the flood monitor on duty will return your call within 30 minutes
