SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - Sept. 1968 to current year. PERIOD OF RECORD, Water-Quality.-- CHEMICAL DATA: Oct. 1969 to Aug. 2005. BIOCHEMICAL DATA: Oct. 1969 to Aug. 2005.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is NGVD of 1929 (levels by Trinity River Authority). Prior to Feb. 26, 1969, temporary nonrecording gages at site about 200 ft upstream and at same datum. Satellite telemeter at station.
COOPERATION - The capacity table, furnished by the Trinity River Authority, is based on a survey by the Bureau of Reclamation dated Dec. 1991.
REMARKS - The reservoir is formed by an earthfill dam 14,400 ft long. The dam was completed Sept. 29, 1968, and deliberate impoundment began June 26, 1969. The reservoir is operated for industrial water supply in the Houston metropolitan area. The spillway has twelve 40 x 35 ft tainter gates located near the left end of dam. Low-flow releases may be made through multi-gated inlet tower. There are five gated openings at various elevations located in the tower, and all discharge into a 10-foot-diameter concrete conduit through the dam. Flow is affected at times by discharge from the flood-detention pools of 255 floodwater-retarding structures. These structures control runoff from 617 mi² in the Richland, Chambers, Tehuacana, and Bedias Creeks drainage basins. Data regarding the dam are given in the following table:
                                                                              Elevation (feet)
