HIGH WATER observations BY BOAT CLUB MEMBERS PAUL AND Vickie Dowling.
What is most useful are the predicted and current levels at Paw Paw and Hancock. We get Hancock’s water within hours.
I have learned that a level of 19’ at Hancock comes right to the top of the bank at my lot, which happens to be THE LOWEST LOT IN RIVER BEND!
Their levels DO NOT translate foot to foot.
In other words, if the river rises 3’ at Hancock, it doesn’t mean it will rise 3’ at River Bend, but it will rise, more like 1-1/2’.
Monday’s (4/16/2007) level of 21.36 feet came to the front of my trailer, right at the base of the jack, and just got to the bottom of the rims on my wheels. That is on the lowest trailer in the park! I was prepared to move it, but by watching the Hancock gauge, I knew I was OK. Most members should be OK if the Hancock level stays below about 23-24’. Now Winter ice jams are another story!)
When the Potomac River Water Level at Dam #5 reaches 18 feet, water begins to come over the bank in low-lying portions of River Bend Membership Corporation (Block 139 Lot 107). Property owners should consider moving items that are close to the river.
When the Potomac River Water Level at Dam #5 Reaches 22 feet, water reaches the Gate of the Boat Ramp at River Bend Membership Corporation.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(NOAA) verified the Potomac River Water levels for Dam #5 over the winter, so we will be using their numbers moving forward.
