TRWD continues to monitor reservoir conditions 24 hours a day. A map showing the past 48 hours of rainfall can be seen in Graphic-1. The majority of this rain fell in the Cedar Creek and Richland-Chambers area and has these reservoirs on the rise. TRWD staff will be closely monitoring these sites as inflow continues to come in.
Rainfall is expected to come to an end this afternoon. Low rain chances return to the forecast starting Sunday. See National Weather Service (NWS) guidance below for the weekend outlook.
Currently Eagle Mountain is the only TRWD reservoir making a flood discharge. Any changes in discharge will be posted here.
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, unless conditions dictate otherwise. Please check back.
