TRWD continues to monitor reservoir conditions 24 hours a day. Rainfall has come to an end. A map showing the past 72 hours of rainfall can be seen in Graphic-1. The Richland-Chambers and Cedar Creek watersheds received the bulk of the rainfall. TRWD staff is closely monitoring these sites as the pools continue to rise. At this time there is no flood discharge from Cedar Creek or Richland-Chambers. Any updates to flood discharge will be posted here.
Currently Eagle Mountain is the only TRWD reservoir making a flood discharge. Current discharge is at 365 cfs. This will be increased to approximately 1,300 cfs later this morning.
The remainder of the week and weekend is expected to be mostly rain-free. See National Weather Service (NWS) guidance below for the weekend outlook.
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.
