Retransmission, forecasts and summary by the National Weather Service
In the past, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has used the datum that was used in the construction of Lake Brownwood, which is known as the "Reservoir Datum", for reporting reservoir stage for Lake Brownwood (Station No. 08143000) to maintain continuity with the historical record. The "Reservoir Datum" is 0.50 ft higher than National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD 1929). The elevation of the crest of the spillway is 1424.6 ft above MSL (NGVD 1929) or 1425.1 ft above "Reservoir Datum".

Current USGS policy is to record and publish all reservoir elevations to sea level. As of Feb 23, 1999 all records published for Lake Brownwood are based on National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 and include the remark "prior to Feb 1999, non-recording gages at same site at datum 0.50 ft higher."

Should you need any further information or clarification, feel free to contact the USGS Water Science Center, San Angelo, TX (325) 944-4600.
This station managed by the San Angelo Field Unit.
