Fort Worth District

During February’s annual refresher training held this year at Martin Dies, Jr. State Park, Natural Resource Specialists were honored during an awards ceremony. Fort Worth District Commander Col. Kenneth Reed is pictured with Courtney Kern, Three Rivers Region, Lyndy Black, Trinity Region, Brad Ellis, Capital Region, Brad Grems, Piney Woods Region and Chief of Operations, Tim MacAllister. Courtney Kern was selected as the District Ranger of the Year.
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials announced Jan. 30 the road across the Grapevine Lake Dam will remain closed. Fairway Drive across Grapevine Dam has been closed to the public since August 2018 due to potentially hazardous conditions. Currently, there is no estimated timeframe for reopening of Fairway Drive to the public. Grapevine Lake's flood risk management, water supply and other mission areas continue to be accomplished. As always, public safety is our priority and we appreciate everyone's continued patience and understanding.

Piney Woods Hydropower Business Line Manager Tom Webb is interviewed during a media opportunity in January about the high lake levels and release of flood water at the Sam Rayburn Reservoir. Although the reservoir was close to the top of conservation pool in the first part of December an unusally rainy December and January pushed the lake to almost a new pool of record during January. Power generation through the Powerhouse and releases through the floodgates have helped keep lake levels from engaging the labyrinth weir spillway at elevation 176. The pool of record for Sam Rayburn is elevation 175.15, recorded on March 10, 1992. Engagement of the labyrinth weir spillway remains possible if the current rainy cycle continues.
