Toledo Bend Reservoir Water Releases - Advisory #2

Persons having interests in the Sabine River Basin below the reservoir are hereby advised that on Thursday, December 20, 2018  at 1515 hours, the reservoir elevation was 172.49 ft. MSL.  Currently, both generators are operating 24 hours per day.

Inflow information from the National Weather Service Forecast Center is currently being monitored. Should the reservoir continue to rise, spillway gates may have to be opened.  Releases through the spillway gates will be made in accordance with the Toledo Bend Spillway Operating Guide as approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Toledo Bend Reservoir is not a flood control reservoir and can experience significant rises in elevation in a short time span. The Sabine River Authority of Texas and the Sabine River Authority, State of Louisiana emphasize the importance of keeping informed and staying safe during a rain event.

Interested persons should monitor current river and reservoir levels since the Sabine River could reach flood stage and evacuation of persons, animals and property may become necessary.

Up-to-date reservoir elevations and releases as well as links to specific river gauges may be obtained from SRA’s websites: www.srala-toledo.com, www.sratx.org, or www.setexasrain.org.  Information on specific river gages can be obtained from the National Weather Service at the following website: http://www.srh.noaa.gov/wgrfc and from the USGS at the following website: http://tx.waterdata.usgs.gov.
