The Dam crossing on Hwy 55 south of Camp Wood was flowing at 41,173 gpm (gallons per minute), and the McDonald crossing was running at 22,494 gpm. The McDonald crossing continues to have several pipes that are reduced in flow due debris and gravel.

The Kent Creek crossing showed 1,216 gpm, and a measurement of 5,654 gpm for the Rancho Real crossing. Again, both crossings have some debris and gravel impeding flow.

Moving down the Frio River to FM 1120 past the Alto Frio Baptist Encampment, this crossing had a flow of 13,283 gpm.
