Kennebec River flows are on the way up…
Shortly after the last ice departed the Augusta area, the river flows began to increase significantly. No ice dams formed in the Augusta area this year, but with the arrival of warmer weather we are beginning to see the river flows increase as the snow pack begins to melt in the upper basin. Last week the flows doubled from 20,000 to 40,000 cubic feet second. With the predicted rain and continued warm weather we can expect to see flows increase. In fact, if we get an inch or two of rain, I will not be surprised if we see flows top 50,000 cfs.
