Mountain Run Off to Increase This Weekend

Gallatin County Emergency Management

Expect to see the water levels increase in local rivers over the weekend as warm temperatures increase the melt rate.  We are not expecting to see water levels increasing to the height where we typically experience flooding issues.  However, there will be significant flow and people are encouraged to be safe around the fast moving water.  River gauge information is available here.

A significant amount of water is still contained in the mountains and we should expect water levels to remain high for some time to come.  Satellite Snow Water Equivalent can be viewed here.  SnoTel Snow Water Equivalent levels are available here.
