TRWD continues to monitor reservoir conditions 24 hours a day. Current reservoir conditions are below. Currently, Eagle Mountain, Cedar Creek, and Richland-Chambers are making a flood discharge. Spillway gates are currently closed at Eagle Mountain. However, a small discharge continues at the overflow spillway, and will continue to do so until the pool reaches conservation level. Any updates to flood discharges will be posted here.
Yesterday’s rainfall can be seen in Graphic-1. The Richland-Chambers and Cedar Creek each received over 2 inches of rain. Totals lessen to the north and west; Bridgeport received just over a quarter inch of rainfall. The National Weather Service (NWS) is expecting the rain to clear out today and stay away until at least Sunday, when low rain chances creep back into the forecast. 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.
