10.5 Flooding likely affecting structures along Oneida Street and along Vandenberg Lane and Pheasant Run
9 Which is just above flood stage...water flows into Lutz Park affecting recreational facilities. Since Hydrological projects on the river are passing water very quickly...the water current is dangerous at these levels or higher. Water is impacting some structures near Oneida Street and downstream near Wrightstown
8.4 The current is dangerous and lowland flooding is occurring. Water is affecting an apartment complex near Oneida Street and Water Street
8 Just below flood stage. The water current is fast. Lowland flooding is occurring downstream including the Wrightstown area
7.5 The river current is fast from Appleton to the Thousand Island park downstream. Flooding affects mainly lowland areas downstream to Wrightstown if high flows persist for several days. Flood stage is 8.4 feet
7 The river current in this region begins to get fast from Appleton to The Thousand Island area downstream
