The Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) says Friday that it has closed Eagle Mountain Lake and Lake Bridgeport to recreational activities, including boat traffic, until further notice.
The closures are a result of inflows created by heavy rainfall in recent days. Wakes created by boaters could potentially flood low-lying homes at both reservoirs.
In addition, rising lake levels and debris could create hazardous conditions for other recreational activities.
TRWD’s staff has been monitoring conditions 24-hours a day since May 11, and will continue to do so until conditions improve. The latest information on the district’s lakes can be found at www.trwd.com/lake-level-blog.
