The Sabine River Authority issued an advisory late yesterday to all persons of  interest along the Sabine River basin, to the effect that as of 4PM yesterday the reservoir elevation was at 172.42 ft. MSL.  The reservoir is expected to continue to rise which would necessitate the opening of the spillway gates - initially five gates would open one foot each.

Up to the minute elevations and releases can be obtained from the Toledo Bend Project offices 24/7 at 337-286-5253 or 409-565-2273.
