Water Release From Lake Decatur Could Trigger Sangamon River Flooding


After Thursday's tornadoes and torrential rains... on top of near record snowfall this winter...  flooding could be the next big concern.

 

Thursday’s heavy rain and snowmelt threaten to swell rivers and streams.  And the flood risk may be especially high on the Sangamon River.  High water levels on Lake Decatur are leading officials to release water from the lake into the river… that could cause flooding on the river between Decatur and Springfield. 

 

Those who live near the river, boaters and others are advised to use extra caution around the Sangamon River for the next few days.
