19.14 Flood level is at the record flood height of June 1957. Water reaches top of East Sycamore Street...formerly State Road 334...Bridge. Possibly every local road crossing Eagle Creek in Boone and northwest Marion Counties including Lafayette Road are flooded. Some permanent residences may flood along South 4th Street. Flood waters enter Zionsville Historical Village.
17 Near record flooding of Eagle Cr. Water is 4 feet or higher on East Sycamore St. formerly State Road 334. Flooding nears Zionsville Historical Village. Numerous roads near Eagle Creek in Boone and northwest Marion Counties flooded by 5 or more feet of water. An early indicator of serious flooding along the White River in the Indianapolis area if widespread heavy rain has fallen along and north of Interstate 70.
15.96 Major flooding in progress along Eagle Creek in the Zionsville area on April 19, 2013. This was the highest level since June 1957. Water possibly nearly 3 feet deep flowing extensively over East Sycamore Street (formerly SR 334) at the Zionsville Park. Some residental areas were flooded.
15.95 In April 2013 more than 60 homes at least affected by flooding in Boone County. The Club House of the Zionsville Golf Course and 20 to 25 golf carts also flooded during April 2013.
15 Major flooding along Eagle Creek in the Zionsville area. Flood waters nearly 2 feet deep on portions of E Sycamore St. formerly SR 334. Local roads near Eagle Creek flooded by possibly as much as 4 feet or more. Serious flooding of mobile home park on South 4th St. One home on Temple Ave and another on Templin Rd flooded. An early indicator of major flooding along the White River in the Indianapolis area if widespread heavy rains have occurred along and north of I-70.
14 Near major flooding of Eagle Creek in Zionsville area. Water about a foot deep on East Sycamore St...formerly SR 334 at the west edge of Zionsville. Extensive flooding of Lions Park, Zionsville Golf Course and Creekside Nature Park. Evacuation necessary of mobile home park on south 4th St, one home on Temple Ave and one on Templin Rd. Roads flooded by 3 or more feet of water are Turkey Foot Rd, Temple Ave, Ford Rd at 96th St, Willow Rd at Templin Rd, Noel Rd at 79th St and Holliday Rd.
12.95 On February 28, 2011...water was within 2 or 3 inches of flowing over SR 334 at the west edge of Zionsville. Water was up to 4 feet deep on Temple Ave between Turkey Foot and Willow Rds. One residence on Temple Ave began to flood. Extensive flooding of Zionsville Golf Course, Lions Park and Creekside Nature Park. Turkey Foot Rd north of Temple Ave, the intersection of Fords Road and 96th St, the intersection of Willow Rd and Templin Rd and Holliday Rd were extensively flooded.
12 Water will cover Temple Avenue between Willow Road and Turkey Foot Road at the Zionsville Golf Course, Ford Road near the Eagle Creek bridge near 96th Street on the Marion and Boone County line and Noel Road at 79th Street in northwest Marion County. Lions Park, Creekside Nature Park, Zionsville Golf Course, Holliday Rd and Turkey Foot Rd north of Temple Ave. are extensively flooded.
11.1 On February 28, 2011 the first water rescues occurred at CR 200S just east of Pleasant View Rd and CR 1000E about 0.4 miles north of SR 32 when Zionsville was 11.1 feet and rising steadily and Prairie Creek near Lebanon was at 14.8 feet. These locations are located upstream of Zionsville and may indicate extensive flooding within a few hours in the Zionsville area.
11 Noticeable flooding along Eagle Creek in the Zionsville area affecting Lions Park, Creekside Nature Park and Zionsville Golf Course. Flooding likely of Temple Ave. between Willow and Turkey Foot Rds, Ford Rd near the Eagle Creek Bridge near 96th St. on the Marion and Boone County Line and Noel Rd in northwest Marion County.
