Reservoir Monitoring Update

By July 1, 2020

TRWD continues to monitor reservoir conditions 24 hours a day.  Currently Bridgeport and Eagle Mountain are making flood discharges.  The Cedar Creek and Richland-Chambers spillways remain closed.  Later this morning, the discharge rate at Eagle Mountain will be reduced to 250 cfs.  Additional updates to flood discharges will be posted here.

No measurable rainfall at the TRWD reservoirs yesterday.  Another hot and dry day is expected today.  This trend should continue into the weekend.  The holiday weekend outlook is showing high temperatures with a chance for scattered showers to the east.   National Weather Service (NWS) guidance is shown below in Graphic-1 and Graphic-2.   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.  Next update will come tomorrow morning.  Please check back.
