Emergency Operations Update – Friday, January 26, 2024

The Brazos River is currently reaching its crest near 44 feet and water levels will begin to decrease on Saturday, January 27. LID 15 received additional rainfall on Friday, but the forecast will dry out over the weekend. The LID 15 pump stations were tested today, and the drainage system is operating as designed. The pump station operators are also on stand-by if the forecast changes. The latest information from the National Weather Service is included below.

During any heavy rain event there may be street ponding or flooding if the storm drains are overwhelmed and backed up.  As rainfall decreases, the storm sewers will catch up and any water in the streets will recede.  Never drive into high water.
