Mexico Advises I.B.W.C. of Floodwater Releases
The U.S. I.B.W.C. has been advised of dam releases in Mexico on the San Juan river. One is a tributary that flows into the Rio Grande river at Rio Grande City and the Ciudad Camargo in Mexico.
Coupled with releases from the commission's Falcon dam on the Rio Grande, water levels in the lower Valley will be above normal for several days. To control the river's flow in Brownsville, the commission will temporarily hold water in the river between Anzaldus and Retamal dams. This will cause the river to rise and continue too for several days. No diversions that flow into the U.S. interior floodway system are expected.
