Reservoir Monitoring Update

By February 14, 2020

TRWD continues to monitor reservoir conditions 24 hours a day.  Cedar Creek Reservoir reached conservation level overnight and discharges have been initiated. Currently Eagle Mountain and Cedar Creek are only TRWD reservoirs making a flood discharge.  Current reservoir conditions are below.  Any updates to flood discharge will be posted here.

The weekend is expected to be rain-free.  Next rain chance comes Tuesday with the arrival of another cold front, see Graphic-1 for National Weather Service (NWS) Guidance. 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. The next update will come tomorrow morning, unless conditions dictate otherwise.  Please check back.
