Lake Bridgeport Gage Malfunction

By July 21, 2021

The lake level gage at Lake Bridgeport had an equipment malfunction yesterday around 5 p.m.  It is estimated that the Lake Bridgeport elevation is currently between 835.75 and 835.80.    The United States Geological Survey (USGS) is aware of the issue and is sending a technician out today.    The USGS operates and maintains gages across the entire country.   Lake Bridgeport is one of several sites in the Trinity River watershed funded by TRWD.  To see the full extents of the USGS’s coverage area, check out the National Water Dashboard.

Updates will be posted here once the issue is resolved.
