PRESS RELEASE – FLOODING UPDATE

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

12:50 PM

**INFORMATION WILL BE UPDATED AS NECESSARY**

PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE RISING RIVER, CREEK AND DITCH LEVELS.

Nash Spring Creek (aka Flat Creek) is overflowing its banks and is flooding a portion of the Valley View Golf Course. 

Bozeman Creek rose approximately 6”-8” at Bozeman City Hall overnight.  With the continued rain in the forecast, we can expect Bozeman Creek to continue to rise.  It is likely, if the creek level continues to rise, there may be more extensive flooding through Valley View Golf Course over on to Kagy Boulevard similar to what was experienced on May 25, 2011.

Bozeman residents are reminded that flooding could occur at any time.  Many of the creeks and ditches around Bozeman are at capacity and do not have room to accommodate additional water.  We strongly encourage property and business owners that are prone to flooding, or near a watercourse, to regularly monitor the water level and sandbag around the foundations of your homes and businesses.  Sandbagging information is detailed below.
