River Update

Posted: Updated:

After several days of flood watches and warnings along the Mouse River, there are now only three river gages registering flood-level flows.

As of today, the National Weather Service is reporting the Mouse in the 'moderate' flood stage east of Foxholm, at Towner, and at Bantry.

The high readings are because of flows from Lake Darling Dam of 2,800 CFS - a flow expected to be maintained until Friday when it is likely to be reduced.

At the Foxholm gage directly below Lake Darling Dam, the Weather Service projects a drop at the end of the week, reflecting plans for lower releases.

Other areas where the river got into flood stage before stubborn ice was washed away are now showing readings below flood stage.

But downstream of Velva, the river is still predicted to remain at flooding levels for several days.
