River Continues to Rise

Posted: Updated:

Three locations along the Mouse River are now at moderate flood stage.

The river level has been rising due to increasing releases from dams in Canada and at Lake Darling in the US.

As of today, river gages west of Sherwood, east of Foxholm, and at Towner are measuring river levels in the moderate flood category.

At Logan, the river is in the minor flood stage.

The National Weather Service projects the river will rise another foot-or-so at the Sherwood gage - where water has already begun covering some of the low-lying farm and ranch land.

River projections call for the level to remain about the same at Foxholm and the Boy Scout Bridge.

And the Weather Service predicts a rise of between one and two feet downstream of Minot at Logan, Sawyer, Velva, Towner, and Bantry.

All of the current flood issues have been caused by the effort to release water from reservoirs to make space for an expected high snow melt - although very little melting has yet taken place in the river's watershed which stretches into southern Saskatchewan.
