Richland Chambers Reservoir– Current elevation is 316.14 ft-msl (normal conservation pool = 315.00 ft-msl).

ALERT: Eagle Mountain Lake and Lake Bridgeport closed to recreational activities including boat traffic until further notice.

The closures are a result of inflows created by heavy rainfall in recent days. Wakes created by boaters could potentially flood low-lying homes at both reservoirs. In addition rising lake levels and debris could create hazardous conditions for other recreational activities.

TRWD’s staff has been monitoring conditions 24-hours a day since May 11 and will continue to do so until conditions improve. Keep up with the latest here on this blog.
