Twin Buttes Tributaries Flowing
The North Pool at Twin Buttes Reservoir rose over five feet in the last week and seventeen feet in the last month. All four tributaries contributed to today's rapid increase but the South Concho River topped the list.

Update 10-17-18: The South Concho flowed at 19,000 cubic feet per second as of 22:45 this evening. Twin Buttes North Pool is up another foot to 1911.71.
