Pecos River Flooding - High Water Rescue.
It appears that the Pecos River flood crest of 17.36' at 1:45 PM MDT on Sunday, August 21, 2022, might be a new record at the Acme Gauge northeast of Roswell. We will have to wait for the final review from the USGS to know for sure.
Initially, the forecast flood crest of the Pecos River at the Lake Arthur Gauge was 27' which would have been five feet above its historical record crest of 21.9' on September 24, 1941. The forecast crest was lowered down to around 20' but crested well below these forecasts at 13.37' at 3:45 PM MDT on Friday, August 26, 2022.
