Flooding predicted by NOAA

April 10, 2013

Weather alerts went out at 11:30 pm on Wednesday April 10, 2013
specifically for the Clinton River from Pontiac and Sterling Heights

Inevitably that means LOTS of water will be dumped into the Red Run
coming from the rainstorms in Oakland County
Watch for overflows marked : SOCSDS (George W. Kuhn) Retention Basin

If you wonder if a release occurred you can check Facebook

The intensity and duration of the rainfall is what may trigger
a discharge to occur into the Red Run, not necessarily
just an “X” amount of precipitation.
