Illinois River Receeding

Posted by wlpo on April 29, 2011

The Illinois River is on its way down.

The river crested at 25.4 feet in La Salle Thursday night.  The stream is currently at 25.2 feet and will take at least a week to get back below the 20 foot flood stage.

In Ottawa, the Illinois sits at 463.7 feet, just above the 463 foot flood stage.  The river crested at two feet above flood stage yesterday.  It’s supposed to fall back below flood stage Saturday.
