2008-02-20 Trent River below Wilcox Bridge

These pictures are of two strainers on the Trent River which has just been cleared of fallen trees blocking all navigation on this river for years. This river was just cleared to a 15 foot clearance for free passage throuh these fallen trees. These pictures clearly show that this 15 opening is not sufficient in all cases. This river on February was at 3.3 feet at the USGA Chinquapin Chapel Road Gauge. Since then we have had two storm systems. Each one raised the water level over 3 feet. Today the gage was at 9.3 feet.
