...HIGH WATER ON THE KENAI RIVER...

WATER LEVELS ON KENAI LAKE AND THE UPPER KENAI RIVER ARE BANKFULL
IN SOME LOCATIONS AND WILL CONTINUE TO SLOWLY RISE THROUGH THIS
COMING WEEK. NO WIDESPREAD FLOODING IS EXPECTED AT THIS
TIME...HOWEVER WATER WILL BE HIGH THROUGH THE FOURTH OF JULY
HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

THE VERY HEAVY WINTER SNOWPACK IN THE KENAI MOUNTAINS CONTINUES TO
MELT AND SEND RUNOFF INTO THE HEADWATERS OF THE KENAI RIVER. THIS
SNOWMELT HAS BEEN ACCELERATED BY RECENT VERY WARM TEMPERATURES AND
SEVERAL ROUNDS OF RAINFALL OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS. MORE RAIN
FALLING THIS WEEK WILL ADD TO THE WATER MOVING INTO AND THROUGH
THE RIVER. RIVER LEVELS WILL CONTINUE TO SLOWLY DRIFT UPWARD
THROUGH THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

AS OF NOON ON MONDAY... THE RIVER GAGE AT COOPER LANDING SHOWS A
STAGE OF 12.75 FT. THERE IS SOME WATER ACROSS THE ACCESS ROAD TO
PRIMROSE CAMPGROUND, LOCATED AT THE SOUTH END OF KENAI LAKE. WHEN
THE STAGE REACHES 13.0 FT THIS ROAD MAY BECOME IMPASSABLE. RECENT
REPORTS FROM THE KENAI KEYS AREA INDICATE THE RIVER IS BANKFULL IN
THIS AREA WITH PONDING OF WATER IN LOW LYING AREAS ADJACENT TO THE
RIVER. THE NWS WILL CONTINUE TO CLOSELY MONITOR THIS SITUATION AND
WILL UPDATE THIS STATEMENT AS NECESSARY.

THOSE WITH INTERESTS ON OR ALONG THE KENAI RIVER AND NEAR THE
PRIMROSE CAMPGROUND SHOULD MONITOR THIS SITUATION CLOSELY AND
PREPARE NOW FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF CONTINUED RISING WATER LEVELS.
