...Above bankfull but below flood stage levels were observed along
the Rio Grande...

Elevated flows on the Rio Conchos are resulting in river rises on
the Rio Grande from below Presidio through Boquillas.

For the Rio Grande at Presidio 5SE
* The current stage was 8.66 feet (2.6 meters).
* Impacts at 9.0 feet (2.7 meters) the river reaches minor flood
  stage, and low lying areas begin to flood.

For the Rio Grande at Johnson Ranch
* The current stage was 13.35 feet (4.1 meters).
* Impacts at 12.0 feet (3.7 meters) the river reaches bankfull,
  minor lowland flooding occurs, and no significant damage is
  expected.

For the Rio Grande at Boquillas
* The current stage was 10.14 feet (3.1 meters).
* Impacts at 12.0 feet (3.7 meters) the river reaches bankfull, and
  no damage is expected.  Preparations may be necessary to remove
  water pumps.  The park should be notified at this time if
  additional rises are expected so they will have time to remove the
  pumps.

Caution is urged when walking near riverbanks.
