Reservoir Monitoring Update

By June 21, 2020

TRWD continues to monitor reservoir conditions 24 hours a day.  Currently there is a low level discharge from the Eagle Mountain overflow spillway; this will continue until the pool level drops below elevation 649.1.  Otherwise, there are no other flood discharges from the TRWD reservoirs at this time.  Additional updates to flood discharges will be posted here.

No appreciable rainfall fell in the past 24 hours in TRWD watersheds. Some rain is in the forecast for this morning, see  National Weather Service (NWS) guidance in Graphic-1. NWS forecasts continuing rain in the coming week. 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.  The next update will come tomorrow morning.  Please check back.
