Gilboa Dam to Reach Action Stage Tuesday

Written By Editor on 6/30/13 | 6/30/13

With scattered thunderstorms expected to bring strong rains over the next three days, the Gilboa Dam is expected to pass its action stage of 1,125.1 feet sometime late Tuesday morning into the afternoon.
The Gilboa Dam - September, 2009.
Although the dam's height is expected to reach 1,126.6 feet Wednesday morning, it is not expected that levels will reach flood stages, but it is a sign creek and stream levels will be high across the county and more flash flooding cannot be ruled out as thunderstorms roll in.
The dam hasn't reached its minor flood stage since the twin-punch of Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee in late August/early September 2011 and thankfully it doesn't appear likely to do so this time either.
