Severe Weather Update 5/10/2019

Over the night (5/9 into the morning of 5/10), the District received just over 3 inches of rain into the drainage system. All pumps are operational and internal water levels within the community are slowly going down. Supplemental pumps purchased by SPLID after Hurricane Harvey have been and continue to be deployed as a precaution due to the additional rain projected over the next several days. With the amount of water already in the lakes and channels, you will continue to see street ponding during periods of heavy rains, which will recede slowly with pumping.

The Brazos River is expected to crest in Richmond over the weekend at 48.4 feet (NWS Brazos River Link), which is a level that will be 6-9 feet below the top of the District levees.
