Bitterroot River Level Backs Off Slowly

After slipping above flood stage Friday at Bell Crossing, the Bitterroot River has begun to recede after warm weather and heavy rain pushed it and other valley waterways to the tops of their banks.

The Bell Crossing gauge measured the level at 11.06 feet at 2:30 Friday afternoon, and then began to go down. The Darby water gauge never made it to flood stage, stopping at about 7.28 feet. Flood stage is 7.5 feet.

There has been some lowland flooding, and there will continue to be, even on some of the smaller streams in the valley.

KLYQ will keep updating the river levels throughout the high water season, both here on-line and on the air at 1240 on the AM dial.
