High Water Follow-up
Here's an update on the high water over the holiday weekend. At the left are Monday morning hydrographs for the upper Chena and lower Salcha Rivers. The peak stage Saturday on the Salcha was the highest stage in four years, and on the Chena the highest since 2003. The Chena at Fairbanks crested Sunday at 6.4 feet, which is notable mostly in that it's a five foot rise since last week.
