Reservoir Monitoring Update

By June 19, 2020

TRWD continues to monitor reservoir conditions 24 hours a day.  Currently, none of the TRWD reservoirs are making a flood discharge.  Updates to flood discharges will be posted here.

There was no rainfall recorded at the TRWD reservoirs in the past 24 hours. Rainfall chances increase this evening, see National Weather Service (NWS) guidance in Graphic-1, and continue off and on through the weekend.  With the TRWD reservoirs at or near full, staff will be watching this rainfall for potential impacts.  Please continue to follow the NWS and the River Forecast Center (RFC) for the latest information regarding the weather and river conditions, respectively.

Please be advised that forecasts and projections are subject to change, and TRWD reservoir operations are based on observed rainfall conditions.  This will be the last Reservoir Monitoring Update for this event until conditions dictate otherwise.
