...Glacier dammed lake on the snow river which flows into Kenai Lake is releasing...

The Glacier dammed lake on the snow river which flows into Kenai Lake is releasing at this time. Water levels on the snow river are steadily rising and are reflective of previous outburst events. A water level increase on Kenai Lake is expected.

The snow river will likely rise to a stage of 13 or 13.5 feet...causing Kenai Lake to rise 1 to 2 feet. Smaller rises are expected on the Kenai River the end of this week. No flooding is expected at this time.

Uncertainty exists during each Glacier Dam Lake release event in terms of initial Glacier Dam Lake volume and the rate in which the lake drains. Forecast estimates of peak stage and timing will be updated on the Alaska-Pacific river forecast center website: http://aprfc.Arh.NOAA.Gov.
