2015-06-17: The elevation for the top of the conservation pool for Possum Kingdom Reservoir has been set to the reservoir's normal maximum operating elevation of 999.0 feet. The calculation for percent full is now based on this elevation. Also, the January 1942 USGS rating curve was replaced with newly acquired rating curves with links at the bottom of this page.
Possum Kingdom Lake: 99.5% full as of 2020-09-20
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, and (2) 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.
