Reservoir Monitoring Update

By January 25, 2021

TRWD continues to monitor reservoir conditions 24 hours a day.  Rainfall is exiting the TRWD monitoring area and making way for sunshine.  The late night/morning rainfall in the TRWD reservoir watersheds can be seen in Graphic-1.  The remainder of the week should be mostly dry with only a few low chances showers scattered throughout the week.  National Weather Service (NWS) guidance on this event can be seen in Graphic-2.

Current reservoir conditions are shown below.  Richland-Chambers is the only TRWD reservoirs making a flood discharge at this time.  Updates to lake status and flood discharges will be posted here.

Please continue to follow the National Weather Service (NWS)  and the River Forecast Center (RFC) for the latest information regarding 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 until heavy rainfall returns to the forecast for the TRWD lakes and watersheds.
