As of Friday May 29 2015 at 6:00 pm – the following estimates are based on on-ground flow conditions barring further rainfall:

Lake Bridgeport – Current elevation is 838.26 ft-msl (normal conservation pool = 836.00 ft-msl).  Current discharge is 8208 cfs. Bridgeport is expected to reach approximately 838.2 ft-msl by 12:00 am tonight with a projected discharge at that time of 8194 cfs.

Eagle Mountain Lake – Current elevation is 650.04 ft-msl (normal conservation pool = 649.10 ft-msl). Current discharge is 7007 cfs. Eagle Mountain is expected to be approximately 649.8 ft-msl by 12:00 am tonight with a projected discharge at that time of 6844 cfs.

Cedar Creek Lake – Current elevation is 322.55 ft-msl (normal conservation pool = 322.00 ft-msl).

Richland Chambers Reservoir– Current elevation is 316.20 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.
