Over the last few weeks, there has been a significant amount of rain in our area and even more upstream to our north. As such, river projections are increasing on the Brazos River, and the board wanted you to be aware. Today (10/18), the forecasted crest stands at 39.2 feet.
An anticipated crest approaching 40 feet will seal off gravity flow to the pump stations. This action means all rainfall that occurs this week (or until the Brazos River gauge recedes below 40 feet) will be pumped out of the area. We do not anticipate any issue with the storage capacity inside the district.
How are the pump stations?
All of our pump stations are fully operational and prepared for the potential 2-4” of rain expected over the next week. There is no expectation of any issues or concerns over this event.
We will not provide another update on this storm unless the conditions on the Brazos change.
