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.

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.
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.
