December 17, 2014

Greetings Neighbor,

 

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-QnT70jPuOw0/VJhwcrKv-FI/AAAAAAAAT8Y/XiEy_QJNMTo/s400/RtMLc.So.58%5B1%5D.jpgI thought the following information would be good to share with you in the midst of the drought and the continuing concern about the low lake level. The research was done to try to put into perspective what the future of Eagle Mountain Lake will be. There was an article in the Star-Telegram recently about water conservation. Click here for the Star-Telegram.com article.

 

Eagle Mountain Lake Level Information And Future


The lake has been holding at 10.5 feet for a while thanks to the East Texas water pipeline that is connected to the lake. Below is a study of our lake put together to help explain what is happening and what the future holds.

42 of the last 75 years the water level varied from the full level (649.1) no more than +2 feet high and no less than 5 feet low which is a normal condition. The outlying years of low and high water levels are shown below:

1940 -8 feet
1941 +7 to –6 feet
1942 +10.5 to -10.5 feet
1943 -11.5 feet
1952 -8 feet
1953 -12 feet
1954 -10 feet
1955 -12 feet

1956 -20 feet
1957 -19 to +10 feet
1958 +4.5 feet
1959 +4.5 feet
1962 +3.5 feet
1966 +3.5 feet
1974 +3.5 feet
1980 -9.5 feet

1981 -10.5 to +6 feet
1982 +3 feet
1983 -7 feet
1984 -9.5 feet
1989 +3.5 feet
1990 +8 feet
2000 -10.5 feet
2001 -8 feet

 

In 1992, the Eagle Mountain Water Treatment Plant was constructed. Each year the City of Fort Worth takes out around 6 feet of water from the lake. About 5 feet of lake water evaporates and about 6 feet of water is released in to Lake Worth, which feeds water to the Holly Water Treatment Plan and Lockheed-Martin cooling. In the past this would be replenished by rainwater, runoff, and water released from Lake Bridgeport. Typically, 9 feet of water from Bridgeport is released and 6 to 30 feet of rainwater is collected into the lake.

In 2013, the lake only received 2.7 feet of water from Bridgeport and 3.4 feet of rainwater. However, the pipeline from East Texas water that was connected to our lake in 2009 was run every day in 2013 pumping a total of 12 feet of water into the lake. The lake got to a low of only –6 feet even in such dry conditions. From 2009 to 2012 the pipeline on the average about 2 feet into the lake each year.

So far, in 2014 we received no water from Bridgeport and 3.7 feet of rainwater. The pipeline has pumped a total of only 6.5 feet of water into the lake through October because the pipeline was shut down for 68 days early in the year for modifications. In August, the Eagle Mountain pipeline was shut down for 37 days because all the water was used up because of heavy demand elsewhere over Tarrant County. The Eagle Mountain Pipeline has been running continuously since September 19th, 2014 and the Lake level has stabilized at -10.5 feet low.

Some bad news is that in January 2015 the pipeline will shut down for 6 to 8 weeks for maintenance. Without rainwater, this will probably drop the lake level about 2 feet. Last December, January and February the lake collected about 1 foot of rainwater and there will be no water coming from Bridgeport. Pray for more rain this year.

On a positive note, TRWD has commenced construction of a third pipeline from the East Texas lakes that will increase pumping capacity by 30% by 2020 and 50% by 2030. This will easily accommodate the new Tarrant County growth needs. The El Nino cycle is underway and it is hoped that will fill the gap until 2020. With the new pipeline, we will return to normal lake levels for many years to come and we will remain Lake Country.

If you would like more information about the lake levels, you can contact Bob Lynch who is a LCPOA Board of Director at (817) 566-2963 x707.

I hope everyone will consider joining in 2015, as these great events are not possible without your membership. It has been a productive year for Lake Country Property Owners Association. Look for the invite to join LCPOA in your mailbox the beginning of January 2015.
