Reservoir Monitoring Update

By January 3, 2019

TRWD staff continues to monitor conditions in the TRWD reservoir watersheds 24 hours a day. A map showing cumulative rainfall amounts in the TRWD watersheds since January 2 at midnight is provided in Graphic 1, below.  The majority of the rain has moved eastward out of the TRWD watersheds, and conditions are anticipated to be dry through the weekend.  See NWS guidance below in Graphic 2.  Currently all TRWD reservoirs are above conservation level, and discharges are being made to return the pools to their conservation level.

Current lake levels can be viewed on the TRWD Home Page.  The blog will be updated periodically with additional information.  Please check back.
