... Snowmelt along Koyukuk river causing higher water levels...

Water levels along the Koyukuk river will continue to remain high
due to additional snowmelt.

Although additional snowmelt may cause the water levels to remain
high, it is not expected to go overbank along the Koyukuk river.
There was a fairly significant snowpack in the basin and recent
warm temperatures caused the water levels to rise steadily. The
river observer in Bettles has seen a decrease in water levels and
there is no flooding occurring. The addition of culverts have
helped minimize issues along the Road in town.

Additionally numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms through
Sunday afternoon and evening and again on Monday afternoon could
potentially see additional water level rises. Expected rainfall
amounts of quarter of an inch is possible through Monday which
will contribute to water level rises in the river basin.
