LIBERTY, November 17, 2015 - Trinity River Authority officials have DECREASED the outflow from the Livingston Dam to 48,200 cubic feet per second as the lake level slowly falls.
This reduction will allow water levels in the Trinity River below the dam, to slowly recede as well.
This morning the river is holding steady in Liberty at 28.94 feet ( flood stage is 26.00 feet ) and at Moss Bluff, where the reading is 14.3 feet (flood stage is 12.2 feet).
While these levels are well above flood stage,it would appear conditions will start to improve along the river over the next few days. This of course will depend on how much rainfall we see out of this mornings weather system,but right now it appears that conditions along the Trinity River in Liberty County will improve as we move through the week.
We have not received any reports of flooded homes along the river and we are still awaiting a decision from FEMA as to whether or not Liberty County will receive federal assistance as a result of the October 31st flood that damaged numerous homes in portions of Liberty County.
The Liberty County Office of Emergency Management will advise local residents of the decision once we are informed.
