FORT WORTH, Texas – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District Water Management staff, announced today an increase to 15,000 cubic feet per second of water being released at Proctor Lake.  

The Corps increased the release rate to 15,000 cubic feet per second to draw down the reservoir in response to recent pool level increases. Corps personnel have heightened monitoring and safety surveillance activities at the dam. ‎The dam continues to function as designed, but some seepage has been identified and is being assessed. 

With changing pool levels and flows from the reservoir the Corps reminds the public to exercise caution and wear properly fitted and approved life jackets when in or around the water.
