Twin Buttes Up Nearly 2 Feet

The North Pool at Twin Buttes rose nearly two feet from recent rains.  That could go higher with more runoff rain in the watershed.

Runoff Rain in Concho Valley

Heavy rain is currently falling in the watershed for area lakes.  A flash flood warning is in effect until 10:30 pm.  It could be a difference maker for San Angelo's surface water supplies and area water enthusiasts.  May we be blessed with life giving rains and that everyone remains safe.

Update 5-15-18:   Another evening of flash flood rains in the watershed.  The South Concho in Christoval is flowing at 200 cubic feet per second, up from 20-30.  The Middle Concho ran at nearly 6000 cubic feet for second, reaching a height of seventeen feet.  The North Concho at Grape Creek briefly flowed at 800 cubic feet per second.

South Pool 30 Feet Higher than North

The Equalization Channel has a healthy flow but not enough to keep the North Pool at a steady level.   The South Pool sits at 1927.6 feet in elevation according to an elevation marker.

The North Pool's last reading was 1896.72.  That's a difference of 30 feet. 

South Pool:

North Pool:

Both pools remain viable for windsurfing and paddle boarding.  The water is warm enough to do either without neoprene.  I hope to be out on the water again soon.
