Great Miami River Report: MCD dams and levees are operating as designed, protecting cities along the Great Miami River. Snowmelt last week (1 - 1.25” snow water equivalent) plus rainfall on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (0.75 - 1.25”) has MCD staff responding to the second high water event of 2021.Germantown, Englewood, Lockington, and Taylorsville flood protection dams held back water, reducing downstream flood risk. All but Germantown Dam are still holding back water today.The river reached stages high enough for MCD staff to begin monitoring levees and/or operating floodgates in Piqua, Dayton, West Carrollton, Moraine, Middletown, and Hamilton. (Closing floodgates on storm sewer outfalls in cities keeps the river from backing up into city streets).The Stillwater River at Englewood Dam will peak tomorrow. Great Miami River levels will peak at Dayton, West Carrollton, Miamisburg, and Franklin later today. The river at Middletown and Hamilton is already falling.Trail Impacts: Portions of the Great Miami River and other river corridor trails are under water and hazardous. Trail users are asked to give crews at least a few days to clean up woody debris and mud. bit.ly/MCDTrailConditionsThe weather forecast for the next several days looks sunny and clear with highs in the 40s and 50s, allowing river levels to recede to normal by the end of this week.Watch Great Miami River levels in real-time: bit.ly/RiverLevels20 ...
