Understanding our Lake Levels

Most of our water in the Rio Grande Valley comes from the Rio Grande. Water is stored in two main reservoirs along the river:

  • Falcon Reservoir, located a few miles northwest of Roma – mainly in Zapata County
  • Amistad Reservoir, which is about 300 miles up the river near Del Rio

The graphs below show the latest levels of the two reservoirs.
