Both the Nueces River flows were taken on May 19, 2020. Each had a decrease in flow from past measurements.

The McDonald crossing was flowing at 27,086 gpm two weeks ago and is now flowing at 23,204 gpm. The McDonald crossing continues to have several pipes that are reduced in flow due to debris and gravel.

Both crossing measurements were taken on May 19, 2020, and both continue to have some debris and gravel impeding flow.
On May 19, 2020, east on Ranch Road 337 and past the cemetery is the serene Leakey Springs tributary that flows into the Frio River. This crossing measurement showed a flow of 3,381 gpm two weeks ago and now flows at 3,955 gpm.
