Weather service website to put Dyer, Hart Ditch on flood watch

 DYER | Hart Ditch has a permanent place on the National Weather Service website, a tool that the town surely will incorporate into the early flood warning system it is now developing.

The ditch has been included on a list of waterways now monitored by the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service, a new, web-based component of the NWS Climate, Water and Weather Services. The water level readings in Hart Ditch are kept up to date via a gauge provided by the U.S. Geological Survey, one of AHPS' partners. Readings are displayed in a "live" graph, which can be viewed by anyone visiting the NWS website,

Over a four-day period this month, April 6 through 9, ditch water levels peaked at 4.6 feet. Twelve feet is considered floor stage. - By Mary Wilds, Times Correspondent
