Areal Flood Advisory
Statement as of 3:15 PM AKDT on May 29, 2015

The National Weather Service in Fairbanks has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
for The Sag river from pump station 3 to near deadhorse...

* until 315 PM akdt Sunday

* at 315 PM akdt The Sag river near pump station 3 has exceeded
action stage and is approaching minor flood stage of 20.0 feet.
Rainfall exceeding an inch fell in the Upper Basin of The Sag
river Thursday night into Friday morning. Water levels have risen
faster than expected... likely a result of saturated soil
conditions from the recent snowmelt.

* Water levels on the upper sag river could exceed minor flood
levels by early Friday evening before cresting late Friday night.
This water will travel downstream and reach the area of the Dalton
Highway that was severely damaged by the recent snowmelt flooding
by Saturday afternoon. With recent flooding and damage to the
Highway... impacts could be more severe than normal for this type
of event.

* Damaged areas of the roadway could be impacted and equipment being
used to repair the Highway should be moved to higher ground to
avoid potential damage as the water levels rise. Levels on The Sag
river near deadhorse are expected to fall back to normal levels by
Sunday morning. For the latest Road conditions please check the
Alaska Department of Transportation website:
dot.Alaska.Gov/nreg/Dalton-updates.

Special Statement
Statement as of 12:00 PM AKDT on May 29, 2015

... Gradual increase in water levels along The Sag river expected
tonight through Saturday night...

Heavy rainfall overnight in upper portions of The Sag river
basin of 0.8 to 1.0 inches will cause a rise of around 2.5 feet at
The Sag river gauge at pump station 3. This increased flow is
expected to crest at 19.5 feet around midnight tonight with the
crest expected to reach downstream along the Dalton Highway at
milepost 395 by midnight Saturday.

Although this rise in The Sag river is expected to be within
bankfull at pump station 3... the recent flooding that has
occurred and potential channel shifts may see some minor impacts
as the water level rises along the Dalton Highway and downstream
of pump station 3.

Folks traveling or local residents in the area should continue to
monitor local water levels. For the latest information on Dalton
