Reservoir Monitoring Update

By February 6, 2020

TRWD continues to monitor reservoir conditions 24 hours a day.  The rain has come to an end, at least for the next few days.  A map showing the last 72 hours of rainfall on the TRWD reservoir watersheds can be seen in Graphic-1, below.   National Weather Service (NWS) guidance on the weekend and next week can be seen in Graphic-2.  The upcoming weekend should be mostly clear with low rain chances on Sunday.  TRWD will continue to monitor the forecast for next Tuesday and Wednesday for potential impacts on the TRWD reservoirs.  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 update until at least Monday morning.  Please check back Monday morning for additional updates.
