Reservoir Monitoring Update

By January 2, 2019

TRWD staff continues to monitor conditions in the TRWD reservoir watersheds 24 hours a day. Currently all TRWD reservoirs are above conservation level, and discharges are being made to return the pools to their conservation level. Additional rain has begun falling in the TRWD reservoirs as of Wednesday morning, and is expected to continue through Thursday afternoon/evening.  TRWD staff will monitor this rainfall and impacts to reservoirs to determine whether discharge adjustments are necessary.

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