Alamo Lake passes target water surface elevation

Los Angeles District
Published March 17, 2020

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District will begin operations to bring the water surface elevation of Alamo Lake back to its target elevation.

The WSE has risen above 1136 feet, 11 ft., over the target operating elevation of 1125.  Rain predicted for later this week will likely raise the elevation further.

We are coordinating with downstream entities for a release of 1,000 cubic feet per second or more.  In the meantime, this afternoon, the release will increase to 500 CFS and continue for the foreseeable future.

When the WSE goes back down and reaches its target elevation of 1125 ft., base flow releases of 25-40 CFS would resume.

We will provide another notice prior to increasing the release above 500 CFS.
