Emergency Operations Update – May 6, 2024

The Brazos River will continue to rise this week and is forecasted to reach 44.8 feet on Friday, May 10.

At this level Brazos River water in Ditch H will close the FBCLID 2 flood gates, but water levels are not expected to reach the bottom of the levee.

The FBCLID 2 Operator performed maintenance pumping throughout the weekend to maximize the amount of storage in the drainage system.  Fortunately, the rainfall forecast over the next seven days is less than 0.25 inches.

The District is actively monitoring conditions and is prepared to respond if the forecast changes. The pump stations have been tested and operators are on stand-by if needed.
