Low Water Records
Currently none available.

Graphical representation of flood inundation for NWS flood categories are based on steady state hydraulic modeling of water surface elevations for incremented discharges. Map shows approximate inundation areas for given water surface elevations and should not be used for navigation or permitting or other legal purposes, but strictly as a planning reference tool.

Extended rating:
Rating Curve Extension - The Rating Curve Extension is calculated by using either a linear, logarithmic, or hydraulic technique to extend the rating curve above the currently established relationship between stage and flow.

53.7 This is flood of record, from the remnants of Hurricane Beulah on September 23, 1967. Water is near the bottom of the new bridge on Highway 183, which will require evacuations of residents to prevent them from being stranded
44 Major flooding occurs. Nearly all of Goliad State Park is under water, except the headquarters and mission area, causing major damage. Many livestock are cut off and are potentially drown above Goliad, to the Guadalupe River confluence. Water also approaches the lowest residences which may be stranded in the south edge of Goliad
40 Major flooding occurs. Nearly all of Goliad State Park floods, except the headquarters area and mission, causing major damage to the park. Many secondary and primary roads and low bridges flood. The flow is within a few feet of the lowest residences in the south edge of Goliad and Highway 183. Hundreds of livestock are cut off, and can potentially drown in the flood plain below Falls City to the Guadalupe River confluence
35 Major lowland flooding occurs. Roads, many camp sites, RV and temporary shelter sites in Goliad State Park flood. Hundreds of livestock downstream in the flood plain are cut off and potentially drown
33 Moderate flooding occurs. Roads, many camp sites, RV and temporary shelter sites in Goliad State Park flood. Hundreds of livestock downstream in the flood plain are cut off and potentially drown
32 Roads and several camp sites through Goliad State Park flood. Moderate lowland flooding above Goliad to the Guadalupe River confluence, cuts livestock off and potentially drowns them
30 Moderate lowland flooding occurs, covering much of camping area at goliad state park
25 Minor lowland flooding occurs, with water in the lowest areas of goliad state park. Livestock below goliad to the guadalupe river confluence are cut off and potentially drown
22 Bankfull conditions occur. The lowest camp sites in Goliad State Park flood. Livestock below Goliad to the Guadalupe River confluence are cut off and potentially drown
15 Nuisance flooding occurs. Livestock are cut off in the flood plain downstream below Goliad to the Guadalupe River confluence
