Twin Buttes Equalized

The North and South Pools at Twin Buttes Reservoir equalized this past week.  Concho Valley Homepage had it happening at 1926.5 feet elevation which occurred on October 28th.  

I thought it might happen at 1927 feet, a level I had seen the South Pool when it had some flow into the North Pool.   The twin pools hit 1927 feet at the stroke of midnight on Halloween. 

The lake is up another third of a foot since then and the two pools hold over 100,000 acre feet.  It's an absolute blessing.
