SRYC Survives Yet Another Flood

Near-record level flood waters raised the Illinois River to within a few inches of its all-time record flood level this week. The 7am river gauge at Ottawa on February 22 showed a crest of 471.4, just about 2 feet below the all-time high water level of April, 2013.

At SRYC, water came up to just below the level of the blacktop. The new docks floated up nicely, which is very good news. At this time, no boats are threatened. As waters recede, we’ll closely monitor the docks in case any get hung up on the way down.

Dee Bennett Road was temporarily closed during the height of the flood.

Here are some pictures, showing the water just starting  to come over the blacktop.
