Toledo Bend Reservoir Water Releases - Advisory #2

Persons having interests in the Sabine River Basin below the reservoir are hereby advised that on Wednesday April 20, 2016 at 1200 hours, the reservoir elevation was 172.16 ft. MSL. Currently, one generator is out of service for repairs and the other generator is operating 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.  If the reservoir continues to rise, spillway gates will have to be opened.  Due to the outage of the one unit, spillway releases will be initiated around 172.35 in lieu of the normal elevation of 172.5.

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