Brazos River Levels


Due to rainfall upstream of the District in the Brazos River watershed, we are anticipating elevated water levels in the Brazos River and Ditch H. The current forecast is estimating the Brazos River level at the Richmond gauge to be 39.2 feet on Sunday, October 21, 2018. It is possible we could see Richmond gauge at or above 40 feet. For your reference, the Brazos River crested at 55.19 feet during Hurricane Harvey. The District’s operator and engineer are monitoring and will continue to monitor the Brazos River levels and update the District’s website as necessary.
