Does anyone know how the river is running now with all the rain we seem to be getting?

Here is some info from W.O. river wiki
Quote:
The current level for this river can be found through the Environment Canada Real-Time Hydrometric Data site, gauge 02EC002 Black River at Washago.
Low flow (ledges mostly or completely dry) is 7.76m (12cms).
High flow (features washed out) is 8.7m (59cms). When the Black River is at high flow or washed out the nearby Head River is usually at a good running level.
A visual check is to look for the three rocks just downstream of the Hwy 169 bridge. If no rocks are showing then it is likely washed out. If one or two, even three, are just showing above the water then most features will be in.


Not being dam controlled takes some time to get back up.
And it rained harder last weekend
Guelph way than even in Milton.
