- Water levels have since dropped down 11-12 inches from that peak through the end of June.
A 2-3 month period when the swamps go dry.
And June is usually our “soaking in” season:
When the startup of wet season rains re-fill the swamps.
The staff gage is reading right where it should be (or normally is).
At 17.2 ft above sea level …
That matches the 20-year median for the start of July.
