River Update 3/10/20

Did a check of area dams. Our dam is at 70% open as of 10:00. The beloit dam is at 30% open at 10:00. The reason we are open more is due to the fact of the pec. and sugar rivers being out of their banks. The kish. river is giving its flow to byron. All dams in the country open as needed as the flow rates increase and close as the flow decreases. We should not send excessive water to ogle county and rock county should not send excessive water to us. Everyone works together to the benefit of all. The bottom line is mother nature is in charge of the show and we all just need to be patient. Sun,wind and warm temps. are our only hope for a speedy recovery.
