The Gallatin River in Gallatin Gateway is beginning to show signs of ice breaking up. This is a good situation that will hopefully create room in the river channel for the water. While we have not seen a noticeable drop in flooding yet, hopefully we will start seeing flood waters begin to recede. Residents should keep in mind that this situation is dynamic and could change quickly with the weather. If flood waters do recede, residents should continue to closely monitor conditions through the winter as weather conditions change.
