Hold on to your britches folks! PK is releasing 16,664 cfs.
Granedbury is releasing 15,939 cfs at the moment. I expect that to increase to accommodate what PK is currently releasing.


W lake is 8.6 feet above normal. With the above releases, and the possibility of more rain soon, the W lake could hit 20 feet above normal pending how much they release before they really open the gates. The W lake is currently releasing 506 cfs.



Waco is holding water back as well as many of the lower Brazos projects. Many are above normal. And many are much smaller lakes sized like the A lake.



A lake is 6.27 feet above normal. And releasing 990 cfs, into the Brazos as well.

W is almost 10 feet high now. Looks like everything will be shut down until sometime in July.

PK is currently releasing 15,725 cfs. Grandbury is currently releasing 17,780 cfs.



W lake is 10.17 feet above normal. And releasing 13,558 cfs.


A lake is 5.01 feet above normal. And releasing 974 cfs.


Many of the smaller impoundments in the middle and lower Brazos valley are releasing some water. ACE has been doing a great job trying to keep folks down stream from flooding. Hats off for ACE!

Mike, I heard on the mighty BAP yesterday, they issued a local disaster emergency for Hood county.... said PK was opening a 3rd flood gate, and to expect flooding for Granbury area.

That doesn’t sound good for the Brazos valley.

PK is releasing 28,360 cfs at the moment. Granbury is releasing 27,336 cfs. Granbury will have to open more gates to accommodate the inflow. PK is barely below normal of .07 feet. With today's storms in that area, I'd expect PK to open a bit more.

The fish are biting, and there's hogs to be kill-t. Gotta go!

PK has dropped it's release back from this morning to 17,767 cfs. Grandbury has increased it's release to 31,619 cfs.


The W lake is rising. And currently sits at 11.86 feet above normal. It is releasing 21,396 cfs.


A lake sits at 4.93 feet above normal. And releasing 973 cfs.




How high to you think the W lake will go? I think they will try to hold the release rate back as much as possible to keep from flooding down stream. There is over 30K cfs being released into the river system at the present (not counting Grandbury or PK), with other projects combined with the W lake's release. That's quite a bit when you get down by Rosharon, Texas. But that poor little town has seen 54 feet above normal too. And it's pretty flat down there. Lots of room for the water to spread out before it hits the delta.

PK is releasing 17,636 cfs still. Good news is it hasn't had any inflow. And is slightly below normal. This should mean it should shut the gates down soon. Grandbury is releasing 19,856 cfs. Down from my past posting. It will have to continue releasing after PK shuts down for a few days. Then it will shut down too. This is providing there is no more rain in the area.


W lake is 13.21 feet above normal. It is releasing 25,006 cfs.


A lake is down to 3.53 feet above normal. It is releasing 955 cfs.


Everybody, have a safe and wonderful weekend! And don't forget to drink plenty of non-alcoholic fluids with the heat that's out!

Coworker who lives on the Grandbury lake said it was really flowing. Channel markers were turned sideways with the current. Logs coming in as fast as they go out from one end to the other.

Hope and praying for yall Paycheck! I've had family property looking like that on Lake Worth a few times. We never got flooded out though, in the 76 years we owned it. On the light side, I could sit in the yard and catfish in the yard. They were in there eating all the earthworms, grubs, and other insects in the yard.



No release changes have been made except the A lake is releasing 4 cfs less than yesterday evening.


W lake has dropped a few inches in the last 24hrs. And sits at 13.01 feet above normal. Bad news is: PK level has come up a bit in the last 24 hrs, about 3". And is slightly above normal by 2.5 inches.



A lake has dropped a few inches also. And sits at 3.26 feet above normal

Good news: None of the lakes have had an inflow in the last 24 hours. And all are releasing something except Georgetown. It is 3.30 feet low and not releasing. PK is releasing 17,636 cfs still. Grandbury is still releasing 19,856 cfs.



The W lake sits at 12.59 feet above normal. A little down from the past 24 hours. And has dropped it's release rate to 23,806.


A lake is 2.69 feet above normal. And is releasing 943 cfs.


With the expected warm weather to come this coming week, we should see more decline in lake levels.
