Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 3:02 PM AKDT Jul. 25, 2016 – National Weather Service

... The Flood Advisory remains in effect until 245 PM akdt Wednesday
   for the chena river upstream of nordale Road... ...

* the chena river east of nordale Road remains near bankfull with
minor flooding in some locations. Low lying boat launches and
river access roads in the chena Recreation Area are flooded and
many have erosion damage to the roads. There is also flooding at
the Granite tors day use area... the mile 37.5 shooting range and
the mile 41 Stiles creek extension trailhead. The portions of the
spillway upstream of the Moose Creek dam area also flooded. The
river is now falling from Two Rivers east and should continue
falling slowly over the next several days. From the Moose Creek
dam downstream the chena river will remain high through Wednesday
as water slowly drains out from behind the dam.

* In the Steamboat Landing subdivision in North Pole... water levels
are expected to remain at minor flood stage through Wednesday.
Several inches of water will continue to cross Freeman Road. River
water will inundate some yards in the subdivision... and
groundwater flooding will occur in some basements.

* The U.S. Army corps of engineers Alaska district is currently
operating the Moose Creek dam. Flood control gates at the dam
started regulating the chena river at 6:00 PM on 20 July 2016.
The dam will be regulating the chena river so that flow does not
exceed 12000 cubic feet per second in downtown Fairbanks.
Groundwater will rise to near the ground surface for several
thousand feet west of the Moose Creek dam with minor flooding
possible. River navigation through the Moose Creek dam is
unavailable during operations.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.
