February 23, 2018 Flood Monitoring Update

By February 23, 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 is within 6 inches of conservation pool and could potentially reach conservation in the coming days.  Current forecasts prepared by District staff indicate this could happen as early as this evening.  However, these forecasts are dependent on forecasted rainfall predictions and are subject to change.
  • Cedar Creek is expected to surpass conservation level later today. Shortly thereafter, controlled flood discharges will begin with the goal of maintaining the pool at a safe operating level.

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
