Ohio River Holding Three Feet Above Flood Stage

Metro Sewer District Director Bud Schardein says he expects the river to stay at 26 feet for the next three or four days, even though slightly more rain is in the forecast for Tuesday.

“Were still in a holding patter, we are operating 14 flood pumping plants. They’re doing their job, they’re pumping this rainwater that is hitting the city into the river; and there are no reports of flooding behind the walls or the levee.”
