River Watch: Des Moines continues gradual drop

Despite the snow showers the Windom area received over the weekend, the West Fork of the Des Moines River continues a gradual drop.

As of 3 p.m. today (Wednesday), the river level, measured at the bridge near the Windom Country Club, had dropped to 14.89 feet, which is down 1.33 feet from its recent high of 16.33 feet a week ago. However, that's still 1.42 feet above its recent low point of 13.47 feet on Oct. 1. The river appears to be continuing its gradual drop.

RECENT HISTORY: The river level in Windom rose 4.72 feet from a low of 10.71 feet at 10:30 a.m. on Sept. 7 to 15.43 feet at 8 p.m. on Sept. 12. However, the biggest rise occurred in a 42-hour period from midnight Sept. 10 to 6:30 p.m., Sept. 12, when the river rose 4.51 feet.
