River Projections – 01/03

A quick update for everyone after the recent rains throughout the day and into the evening on Wednesday. LMS continued to pump down each district last night to insure full storage throughout all drainage facilities. After inspections, there are no issues from the recent heavy rains, but they will continue to monitor starting first thing this morning. LMS will do some minor pumping in the morning to completely clear out the districts and continue inspections throughout the day.

With these rains, the river has a new projection of 44.7ft by next week. Currently, at 37.9 and still dropping, this should open up almost all district gates to let remaining water flow out via gravity before the river starts to rise again. Forecasts are pretty quiet as far as upcoming rain, but LMS will continue to watch and have each district ready if the forecasts change.

All good news throughout the county.
