WENATCHEE,WA.-In observance of National Flood Preparation Awareness Week NCWLIFE News received a status report on what to expect in Chelan County this spring. The mountain snowmelt is starting but there are no reports of flooding so far this early in the season. But, Assistant Public Works Director, Josh Patrick says he anticipates possible problems in areas that have seen water damage in the past. . .
Patrick says the County has completed and is planning for more flood control work in the Number One canyon area. Commissioners are also implementing seasonal weight restrictions on some rural roads to prevent damage.
The forecast calls for a gradual warming of temperatures over the course of this week which is good news in terms of flood risk.
