By March 8, 2023

Bottom Line: Cedar Creek Reservoir is nearly full, and there is rainfall in the forecast today and tomorrow, see Graphic 1.  TRWD will be monitoring conditions.  If Cedar Creek’s lake level exceeds elevation 322.0, spillway discharges may be required to lower the lake level.

Current TRWD lake conditions are shown below.  The release from Eagle Mountain is for water supply purposes.  Updates regarding flood discharges from TRWD lakes will be posted here.  Additional updates regarding lake conditions will be provided as conditions dictate.  Be sure to subscribe to receive e-mail notification of any new Lake Level Blog posts.  You can also follow @TRWD_News on Twitter to receive Lake Level blog notifications.
