Reservoir Monitoring Update

By December 10, 2018

TRWD staff continues to monitor conditions in the TRWD reservoir watersheds 24 hours a day.  The next chance for rain comes mid-week according to the National Weather Service (NWS), see Graphic-1.  At this time, the forecasted rainfall depths are very low, less than 1/4″, in the TRWD reservoir watersheds.  TRWD staff will continue to monitor this forecast as it develops over the next few days.   All TRWD reservoirs that are above conservation are discharging and being returned to conservation level.  Current lake levels can be viewed on the TRWD Home Page.  This will be the final post until conditions warrant an update. Please check back.
