The Water District opened three gates at Hubbard Creek Reservoir this morning in response to inflow generated by yesterday's rain. We expect these will remain open for two days or so.


11/02/2018 (8:40 am)

All gates are closed as of 8:00 am today, 11/2/2018. A total of 2,400 acre-feet of water was released during the past two days. The release was made to maintain the reservoir at the Conservation Level permitted by the TCEQ. Had the release not been made, the reservoir level would be only two inches higher than it is presently.


11/01/2018 (4:34 pm)

Just closed two gates, only one remains open, outflow is approximately 860 cfs.


11/01/2018 (11:10 am)

As of 11:00 am we have closed 3 gates, leaving 3 open, releasing 2100 cfs.
