Major Runoff Headed to Twin Buttes

Today's rain produced significant runoff for three of Twin Buttes tributaries, the South Concho River, Dove Creek and the Middle Concho River.  The South Concho went from 1,400 cubic feet per second this afternoon to ten times that amount after early evening rains.

Dove Creek flowed at 1,800 cubic feet per second this afternoon, a rate close to its flow several weeks ago.

Even the Middle Concho River produced runoff this afternoon at 1,550 cubic feet per second. 

An added bonus is water from a rising Spring Creek.  Between these four tributaries Twin Buttes should rise significantly.

Update:  San Angelo Live reported on this development.  The North Pool is up nearly 3.5 feet as of 2:00 pm.
