11.8 Record stage (7/2/2011).
11 Water begins to encroach western portions of highway 789 south of the riverton bridge. Constant sandbagging and sand berming is needed to keep water off of highway 789.
10.5 Continuous monitoring and/or repair of levees is necessary. Major flooding of homes along the right bank. Water begins to encroach low lying ares along the west side of highway 789 south of the riverton bridge.
10 Water begins to encroach low lying areas west of highway 789. Highway 789 is usually sand leveed by wydot on the south side of the river. The highway remains open. Extensive agricultural flooding downstream of riverton near the black bridge and hidden valley area. Water begins to encroach homes along the right bank.
9 Flood stage. Minor flooding along the right and left banks upstream of the highway 789 bridge. Agricultural flooding downstream of riverton near the black bridge and hidden valley area intensifies.
8.15 Record flow---13,300 cfs (6/15/1935).
8 Bankfull stage. Minor flooding downstream along left bank near black bridge begins.
