FBCLID 15 Weather Update – May 17, 2024

FBCLID 15 received approximately 1.5 inches of rain on Thursday, May 16. The Alcorn Bayou, Hagerson Road, and Steep Bank Creek Pump Stations are operating. Water levels in the lakes and drainage channels will be pumped to the lowest level possible.

Fortunately, very little rainfall is forecasted over the next week. The Brazos River is currently rising and forecasted to crest next week at 46 feet in Richmond, Texas.

High water levels outside the levee have closed the FBCLID 15 flood gates, but water will not reach the bottom of the levee.

FBCLID 15 will continue to closely monitor the rainfall and Brazos River forecasts provided by the National Weather Service.
