Water Levels A Little Low

April 25, 2012, 6:44 PM by Scot Mundt

Water Levels A Little Low

One look at the Big Sioux River as it flows through Sioux Falls and you notice sand bars and little flow. 

Many KELOLAND rivers are far below where they were from last spring.

One can look at this as being both good and bad.  Obviously the good part is we don't have to deal with the flooding problems along the river banks that we had last year.  Many of you may recall the record flooding last spring due to the spring thaw after a snowy winter.

This year is just the opposite. Very little snow this winter leads to little run-off and many river levels are far below flood stage. 

This is bad news because spring thaw is the time when we can replenish lakes and rivers.

While it may be a nuisance to some, spring rains will still be welcomed to help replenish area aquifers before heading into the summer months.
