2017 Hydrology Project Report

2017 was, with one exception, a rather dull year regarding hydrology events in Carroll Cave.  Two major floods were recorded along with one minor flood.

The major floods occurred on 29 April and 5 May.  In both cases Thunder River rose to a bit over 20 feet.  This is not the highest level we have seen, but it is not far from it.  A minor flood occurred on 6 August with Thunder River rising to just under 3 feet.  Otherwise the stream level was normal for the whole year. read more
