Not so minor;

As this is a "forecast", we are very dependent on what amount of rain actually falls/where it falls.  BUT, a crest of 30.6' = 7' of water OVER the metal entrance bridge to Bangert.  Some cleanup will be required after this one, and it may alter how much sand is on the north loop.

Putting my Capt Obvious hat on here, but;

Zez, you got this memorized ....

 

For the newer forum participants, the metal bridge in the slough that allows access from the Katy Trail to the Bangert Island Trail System is under water @ 23' on this gauge.  

@ 28', MOST of the southern (original) trail system (Slough Loop) will be under 2' ~ 7' of water.

 

For several years, Tony @ https://www.bikestopcafes.com/ has been passionately building/finessing the North (Kurtz) Loop - with the "cooperation", and/or permission of SCCP's - from a pile of lemons into something tasty.  GORC will respectfully defer to he, Jody, and their staff in regards to letting the rest of us know when the hazardous materials have been picked up, flood debris* that floated in has been removed and/or is ready to be dealt with, and it is safe to join them in trail reclamation efforts. 

 

Please keep in mind that this is most likely the 1st flood of 2019. 

 

Once the snowpack up north starts melting, we will be going thru this again.  The river basins can only flow ____ amount of water, and when their exits - Missouri and/or Mississippi Rivers - are full, everything else backs up.   

 

Tony & Jody have "been there/done that" in regards to flood cleanup, but also, have a pretty good idea of what is safe post flood.  Please allow them to let the rest of us know when it is safe to use Bangert's Trail System.

 

Questions?
