TRWD staff continues to monitor conditions in the TRWD reservoir watersheds 24 hours a day. See Graphic-1 for the rainfall totals received overnight in the TRWD watersheds. Once again, the Richland-Chambers and Cedar Creek watersheds received the bulk of the rain.
Graphic-1. 24-hr Observed Rainfall Map
- Bridgeport – Pool is near conservation. Discharges have been reduced.
- Eagle Mountain – The current discharges will continue as water from Bridgeport is being passed through. After a slight rise from the overnight rainfall, pool should begin to slowly recede with the reduction of Bridgeport releases.
- Lake Worth – Pool is expected to remain around 594.3 ft-msl until there is a change in Eagle Mountain discharges.
- Cedar Creek and Richland-Chambers – Pools are rising due to overnight rainfall. No crest predictions available at this time. Discharges will continue as the pools are being returned to conservation level.
