The Brazos River is forecasted to crest today (Friday, May 10) but will stay at elevated levels through the weekend.
Brazos River water will remain about 2 feet below the bottom of the FBCLID2 levee.
The flood gates in the levee are closed, so no water from the Brazos River can enter FBCLID 2.
However, all rainfall through the weekend must be pumped out of the levee.
