Thread: Kenai Water Levels

  1. #1

    Default Kenai Water Levels

    Can anyone tell us why the Copper Landing gauge is dropping steadily and the gauge below Skilak Lake is rising? Glacier dam burst or rain or what?

    My FishHead app shows a steady decline the last few days from the Cooper Landing bridge, Skilak Lake Outlet, and the Soldotna Bridge.

    I'm looking at this http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/forecasts.php?wfo=pafc and it shows the water level below Skilak is going up to the Action stage. Quite a difference from the declining levels on Cooper Landing gauge.

    That chart also shows a steady decline. The forecast shows the river rising into action stage.

    Skilak glacier dam appears to be releasing: http://aprfc.arh.noaa.gov/products/f...?product=FLOOD
