This update is being released to inform everyone that if preparations need to be made for the elevated water levels, it would be wise to do so. Inflows are still forecasted to peak on Friday at over 6000 cubic feet per second (Figure 1). The Fox Lake gage is predicted to crest at approximately 5.47’ (Figure 2); the Lower River is forecasted to peak at approximately 5.40’ for the McHenry Tailwater gage (Figure 3), both on Monday, April 8th. It is currently anticipated that all areas of the system will be at or very near Minor Flood Stage. Attempts will be made to allow for as much time to prepare as possible for those impacted.
