TRWD continues to monitor reservoir conditions 24 hours a day. Currently, the Bridgeport, Eagle Mountain, and Richland-Chambers spillways are making discharges – see table below. Updates to flood discharges will be posted here.
Lake Closure Status
- All TRWD lakes (including Marine Creek), trail systems and parks remain open to the public and available for normal recreational activities. However, visitors are subject to all rules, regulations and guidance issued for each specific location either federal, state or local during this period of National Emergency. Please click here to see an important notice about new Eagle Mountain Park hours.
- The City of Fort Worth has closed Lake Worth. The official announcement can be found on their homepage. Lake Worth is owned and operated by the City of Fort Worth.
The National Weather Service (NWS) is calling for warm and humid conditions this week, see Graphic-1 below. Please continue to follow the NWS and the River Forecast Center (RFC) for the latest information regarding the weather and river conditions, respectively.
- Lake Bridgeport is currently receding.
- Eagle Mountain Lake is expected to remain fairly steady, near or under 650 ft-msl.
- Lake Worth is slowly receding from 596 ft-msl.
- TRWD continues to route the large amount of water from the upper part of the watershed through Eagle Mountain and Lake Worth as safely and quickly as possible. Inflow to Eagle Mountain has started slowly dropping off as reductions in discharge from Bridgeport a few days ago are being seen. Small discharge reductions at Eagle Mountain should continue over the next few days.
Please be advised that forecasts and projections are subject to change, and TRWD reservoir operations are based on observed rainfall conditions. The next Reservoir Monitoring Update will be posted this evening.
