Reservoir Monitoring Update

December 28th, 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 – Discharges are being reduced, however the pool will continue to recede over the next several days.
  • Richland-Chambers – Discharges are on-going.  Runoff continues to flow into the reservoir at an elevated rate.  Based on additional information gathered throughout the day, the pool is now expected to crest tomorrow and is not expected to exceed 316.5 ft-msl.
  • Lake Worth* – Expected to hover around 594.2 ft-msl until discharges from Eagle Mountain can be reduced.

Current lake levels can be viewed on the TRWD Home Page.  The blog will be updated periodically with additional information.  Please check back.

Reservoir Monitoring Update

December 27th, 2018|

TRWD staff continues to monitor conditions in the TRWD reservoir watersheds 24 hours a day.  Rainfall has come to an end, totals are shown in Graphic-1.   Bridgeport and Eagle Mountain received about an inch of rain, and discharges will continue to return the pools to conservation level.  At this time it is not expected for either lake to rise more than a half foot (6 inches) above conservation level.  Cedar Creek and Richland-Chambers received 2 to 3 inches of rainfall, discharges are ongoing.  It is too early to make projections on the crest level of these lakes at this time, however reservoir staff is monitoring reservoir and downstream conditions in order to return the pools to conservation level as safe and soon as possible.  Please be advised that forecasts are subject to change and TRWD reservoir operations are based on observed rainfall conditions.  Additional updates will be provided here if conditions dictate, please check back.

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 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.
