Real-Edwards Conservation & Reclamation District
River Flows taken June 17, 2020

Both the Nueces River flow measurements were taken on June 17, 2020. The Dam crossing on Hwy 55 South of Camp Wood decreased its flow from 43,147 gpm (gallons per minute) two weeks ago to a flow of 33,186 gpm. The McDonald crossing decreased from 21,599 gpm to a flow of 19,693 gpm. The McDonald crossing continues to have several pipes clogged with debris and gravel impeding flows.

Both Llano River crossings in northern Edwards County were taken on June 17, 2020. As you can see, measurement flows are decreasing for both Telegraph and Evergreen crossings. For the crossing at Telegraph, the South Llano River measured a flow of 51,419 gpm two weeks ago and now measures at 46,189 gpm. The Evergreen School crossing measured 54,232 gpm and now measures at 49,630 gpm.

On Ranch Road 336 north of Leakey is Kent Creek which flows into the West Prong of the Frio River. As with all our measurements, this crossing decreased in flow from 2,225 gpm to 694 gpm. Further north in Rancho Real, the 1st crossing of the West Prong of the Frio River also decreased in flow from 10,004 gpm to 8,420 gpm. Both crossing measurements continue to have debris and gravel impeding flow through the pipes.

Heading north on Hwy 83, Mill Creek Road crosses the East Prong of the Frio River before it joins the West Prong. This crossing showed a decrease from 19,941 gpm at last measurement to 9,064 gpm. There are several pipes clogged with dirt, gravel and debris.

East on Ranch Road 337 and past the cemetery is the serene Leakey Springs tributary that flows into the Frio River. This is the only crossing that showed an increase of flow from 3,728 gpm to 4,311 gpm. One of the pipes is clogged with debris and has no flow.

Moving down the Frio River to FM 1120 past the Alto Frio Baptist Encampment (Fulgham’s Crossing), this flow decreased from 17,712 gpm to 12,636 gpm. As with most of the crossings, there are several pipes that are clogged with debris. Our area is way behind on rain accumulation. KEEP PRAYING FOR RAIN!
