General Statement of Monitoring Conditions

By May 2, 2018

District reservoirs are currently at or near conservation level.  The National Weather Service (NWS) is forecasting the potential for severe weather starting this evening and continuing into Saturday.  According to NWS guidance, the main threats during this period are wind and hail, however locally heavy rainfall is possible.  The latest forecasts are predicting around an inch of rainfall for the District reservoir watersheds.  Guidance from the NWS River Forecast Center is indicating runoff potential for the area is low.  However, with District reservoirs near full, locally heavy rainfall in the vicinity of a reservoir can potentially initiate discharge operations.  For this reason, TRWD staff will be monitoring conditions 24 hours a day.   Please be advised that forecasts are subject to change and District reservoir operations are based on observed rainfall conditions.  Additional updates will be provided here if conditions dictate, please check back.

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.
