Reservoir Monitoring Update

March 14th, 2019|

Rainfall totals for Tuesday and Wednesday are shown in Graphic-1 below. This rain generated a fair amount of runoff that continues to travel to the TRWD reservoirs.  Currently Eagle Mountain, Cedar Creek, and Richland-Chambers are making discharges to safely return the reservoirs to conservation level.  Discharge operations at Bridgeport will be initiated later today.  The weather outlook for the next 5 to 7 days is expected to be generally dry providing an opportunity to safely lower the lake levels without the threat of additional rain.  All TRWD reservoirs are expected to stay below 1-foot over conservation.  Current conditions at TRWD reservoirs are shown below.   TRWD staff will be monitoring conditions 24 hours a day.   Please be advised that forecasts are subject to change and TRWD reservoir operations are based on observed rainfall conditions.  This will be the last post until another impactful rain event returns to the forecast.  Until then, check TRWD.com and the Daily Report for the latest information on the TRWD reservoirs.

Reservoir Monitoring Update

December 29th, 2018|

TRWD staff continues to monitor conditions in the TRWD reservoir watersheds 24 hours a day. Currently all TRWD reservoirs are above conservation level, and reservoir staff is monitoring reservoir and downstream conditions in order to return the pools to conservation level as safe and soon as possible. The latest reservoir projections are listed below.  Please be advised that projections are subject to change, and TRWD reservoir operations are based on observed rainfall conditions.

Reservoir Projections

  • Bridgeport – Pool will continue to recede over the next several days.
  • Eagle Mountain – Pool will continue to recede over the next several days.
  • Cedar Creek – Runoff from the outer reaches of the watershed are just now arriving at the reservoir resulting in a secondary wave of inflow.  Discharges were increased this morning to manage the pool level.
  • Richland-Chambers – Inflows peaked overnight around 25,000 cfs and are on the way down.  The pool is expected to peak this afternoon and is not expected to exceed 316.4 ft-msl.  Discharges will continue to manage the pool level.
  • Lake Worth* – Expected to hover around the 594.1 to 594.2 ft-msl range until discharges from Eagle Mountain can be reduced.

Lake Bridgeport Gauge Malfunction

December 18th, 2018|

As of 12:00 p.m. today (12/18/18) the lake level gauge at Bridgeport is reading incorrectly.  Since that time the levels have been dropping at a rapid rate and are incorrect.  The USGS has been notified and will be out to service the gauge tomorrow morning.  Until that time the lake is expected to continue to slowly rise.  Projected elevations prepared by reservoir monitoring staff are listed below.  Please note that these projections are based on upstream watershed conditions at the time of this post and are subject to change.

  • 12/18 12:00 p.m. – 836.06 ft-msl (last know elevation)
  • 12/18 6:00 p.m. – 836.07 ft-msl (projection)
  • 12/19 12:00 a.m. – 836.09 ft-msl (projection)
  • 12/19 6:00 a.m. – 836.11 ft-msl (projection)
  • 12/19 12:00 p.m. – 836.13 ft-msl (projection)
  • 12/19 6:00 p.m. – 836.14 ft-msl (projection)

An update will be posted here once the issue is resolved.  Reservoir staff will be taking periodic manual readings to ensure the reservoir is at or near the expected elevation while the gauge is reading incorrectly.
