Pecan Grove MUD Emergency Levee Operation Status

Heavy rains in the Brenham area over the last 24 hours will have the Brazos River water levels on the rise again. As a result Pecan Grove MUD and EDP will initiate Level 2 Emergency Levee Operations. EDP is conducting daily site inspections of the levee system and pump stations to confirm operation capability. The current prediction model from the National Weather Service indicates that the water level on the river at the Richmond gauge is above 35 feet and is expected to rise to 50.2 feet by midday Monday. If there is local rain fall, ponding water in the streets should be anticipated and is a normal part of the overall drainage and flood projection system. Please avoid driving through those areas and do not park your cars in your streets or driveways; cars should be housed in the garage to avoid rising water.

As always, please call EDP at our in district office if you have any questions, at 281-238-5000. We will continue to keep you posted.
