3000 3000 CFS OR ONE GAGE OPEN 15+ FT...LOW LYING AREAS WILL FLOOD DOWNSTREAM ESPECIALLY IN THE CAMP CANAAN AND ROADS THAT LEAD TO IT. FURTHER DOWNSTREAM NEAR ROCKHILL, RIVER PARK TRAILS AND PICNIC AREAS WILL LIKELY BEGIN TO FLOOD.
115 115 ft and all flood gates opened.
110 MAJOR FLOODING BEGINS. HOMES AND BRIDGES DOWNSTREAM OF THE DAM MAY BE AFFECTED.
105 MODERATE FLOODING BEGINS. FLOODING IMPACTS HOMES ALOND THE SHORELINE AND IN THE VICINITY OF THE DAM.
102 MINOR FLOODING BEGINS. DOCKS AND BUSINESSES ALONG THE SHORELINE BEGIN TO FLOOD. CAMP CANAAN ON FEWELL ISLAND DOWNSTREAM OF DAM WILL LIKELY NEED TO BE EVACUATED.
101 AT THIS LEVEL MAINLY YARDS OF HOMES AND A FEW DOCKS WOULD BE AFFECTED. FLS NEEDED
100 FULL POOL. DUTCHMAN CREEK LEVELS WILL BE HIGH DUE TO BACKWATER EFFECTS. FLS @ 101.0
