River Watch: Des Moines drops to 13.5 feet

Dry, cold weather has caused a couple of glitches in the water level measurement on the West Fork of the Des Moines River in Windom, but it has now dipped to 13.58 feet.

As of 1:30 p.m. today (Tuesday), the river level, measured at the bridge near the Windom Country Club, had dropped to 13.58 feet.

The glitches included a significant dip on Nov. 7 and again on Nov. 11, but in both cases the level quickly rebounded to normal levels.

The river took a sharp rise on Oct. 22, leveled off for a day at 15.35 feet and continued to rise until reaching its crest of 15.98 feet on Oct. 25y. The most recent reading is now just .11 feet above the Oct. 1 low point of 13.47 feet.

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.
