... High water continues on interior Alaska rivers...

The water from heavy rains of last week has moved out of streams
and into larger rivers. The Nenana river has a flood advisory,
with minor flooding occuring in the city of Nenana, and that
flooding is expected to continue for several more days. The Tanana
river has a flood advisory from Shaw creek all the way to the
city of Tanana with flooding in low lying areas along the Tanana
river, which will last for several more days. This includes the
areas along the old rich Highway in Salcha, the Rosie Creek
Subdivision near Fairbanks, areas near Nenana and Manley Hot
Springs.

The little chena and goodpaster rivers crested Sat below bankfull
and the threat of flooding is over on both of those rivers. The
upper chena river crested Saturday at minor flood stage, and the
chena river near hunts creek crested Sunday near minor flood
stage, and water at both of those locations remains high but is
falling slowly. The chena river at the Moose Creek dam is cresting
now at minor flood stage and will remain that high today. The dam
began operation Sunday night and will keep waters backed up
through today at least. The chena river between the dam and
Fairbanks will crest today below bankfull, but will remain high
for several more days. Minor flooding in the Steamboat Landing and
Freeman Road areas is expected, as well as along other old
sloughs along the chena river. The Salcha river crested Sunday
over a foot above flood stage, which is the highest water level on
the Salcha river since 2014.

Ground water flooding into basements is occuring in the Salcha
area, and could occur in North Pole and Fairbanks, and at any low
lying areas along the Tanana river and the chena river. The water
table in all of these areas will remain high for at least several
more days.

The chena river in Fairbanks is only 4 and a half feet below the
barnette street bridge, and also close to the base of the peger
Road and University Avenue bridges. Many power boats are too tall
to make it under these bridges, and all boaters should be very
cautious.
