Snoqualmie River Conditions

  • Oct 2, 2008 at 12:24PM

The U.S. Geological Survey provides real-time water level information for area rivers. The information is used by many local residents to determine the level of concern as waters rise. It is not uncommon for television stations or local radio stations to highlight rising waters but people who have been through floods before know when and where to get excited. High water marks for various flood periods vary. The 1990 flood saw approximately 49,000 CFS at the Snoqualmie monitoring station. Historic Snoqualmie residents tend to get more concerned when the flow reaches 35,000 CFS in Snoqualmie.
Another way to gauge flow conditions is to look at upper river flows. For instance, look at the stations for both the North Fork and South Fork. If they are rising, the peak levels will not have been reached in Snoqualmie. If they are falling, the peak has happened, or is about to happen in Snoqualmie.
