2016 was a pretty boring year for the stream flow project. There were no major flood events in the cave.
2015 ended with a major flood, reaching 24 feet in Thunder River. The effects of that flood lingered over to the first two days of 2016. By January 3 the river was back down to normal levels. Aside from that, Thunder River reached 4 feet for a day in early July, but otherwise stayed below 2 feet for the entire year.
