recent changes

2013-06-19: The vertical datum for the 1995 TWDB rating curve for Lake Medina has been adjusted from NGVD29-7.81ft to NGVD29-7.80ft.

Medina Lake: 89.3% full as of 2017-05-27

The elevation-storage rating curve used to produce the storage hydrograph is made of two segments: (1) the segment up to the conservation pool top (below the red line) is based on measured data, while the segment in the flood pool (above the red line) is an extrapolation from the first segment and shouldn't be relied upon for flood storage information.
