City's Network of Stream Monitoring Stations Shows Water Levels

Though it doesn't help necessarily with plugged storm grates and micro-conditions, the City's network of monitoring stations can provide some useful data on stream levels, especially as it impacts your commute and non-neighborhood conditions farther from home.

The Statesman is reporting several road closures and the City Manager's call that it's now a "40 Year" event.

The graph above shows the water level on Mill Creek very near North High. It's over the high water mark and some State offices are evacuating underground parking structures today.

Here's a map of the stations and click here to generate the most current graphs and reports.

Not that you're gonna be reading a bike blog or anything right now, but if you are...the City has posted a map based on "Approximate Areas at Highter Risk of Local Flooding" at the projected crest at 4pm on Friday.
