• Memorial Day Weekend Update 2020

    May 24, 2020
  • Memorial weekend update: The rain on saturday to our west has caused a spike in the river levels. The call has been made to have the dam gates adjusted to a proactive level this morning. With the rain in the forecast for the next several days it does not look good for our drainage basin. The fox river is flooding from last weeks rain event. We were all hoping we could dodge a bullet for our area going to no-wake this weekend. If todays adjustment doesnt work and more rain hits our basin we will probably see the river go to no-wake for a bit. We will keep everyone posted as to any changes in river status. The entire midwest is feeling the effects from the ground saturation levels staying at 90% due to the cool and damp spring we have been having. We are all frustrated that this is the forth year in a row for elevated river levels. Mother nature is in charge of the show and none of us are a fan of her at the moment.
