River News !

Grafton, IL Is Open.........


Good Saturday Morning ! The current water level in Grafton is 25.3 feet on its way to a slow crest on Thursday or Friday of 26 feet. Grafton is open and Will remain open until further notice. Yes, IDOT has placed some barricades throughout town indicating the roads closed, but that is what they are required to do. They cannot detour traffic through our city streets and their detours have to accept all vehicles including semi trailers. The barricades are staggered which allows an automobile to navigate around them. Please keep your speed down when traveling through any water and on the marked high water routes through town. We welcome all visitors to Grafton but we kindly ask that you respect the property of our residents by keeping out of their yards and driveways.

Thanks for visiting!
Mayor Eberlin.

Midwest Flooding

Experts:  Flooding Risks May Remain For Months To Come.........


While floodwaters have been receding in some locations around the Midwest, experts stated on Saturday that the relief miy be temporary, as there is a considerable amount of snow left to melt in the northern states.


In the past several weeks, rainfall coupled with some snowmelt, has caused flooding that has been blamed for three deaths, and two men missing for over a week.


Thousands of residents have forced from their homes in Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska, as floodwaters have overtopped or broke through levees.  So far, damages have been estimated to be around $3 billion, and is expected to increase........

Lower Mississippi River

High Water Causing Dangerous Currents.........


The United States Coast Guard is encouraging boaters heading out onto the Lower Mississippi River to be aware of the risks associated with high water and swift currents.


The higher than average water levels create very swift and powerful currents, which accumulate large amounts of debris, and can create dangerous situations along the Mississippi River.


When the river currents are more powerful than normal, they can create eddies and rips in places that they may not have been before.  This can quickly pull a person or boat into a dangerous situation........

News Release From BoatUS

ACWORTH, Ga., March 21, 2019 – Want to learn the basics of powerboating or brush up on your skills? The nonprofit BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water together with TowBoatUS Lake Allatoona offer a choice of two fun on-water boat training courses taught aboard single-engine powerboats: Intro to Boating and Women Making Waves, Saturday, April 13, and Sunday, April 14, at Holiday Harbor Marina and Resort on Lake Allatoona at 5989 Groovers Landing, Acworth.
Both the Intro to Boating and Women Making Waves courses are three hours long and affordably priced at $129 per person. Intro to Boating covers shifting and steering, basic docking, open-water handling and basic navigation, and is offered Saturday at 9:30 a.m., 10 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 2 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. and Sunday at 9:30 a.m., 10 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 2:15 p.m., and 2:30 p.m.
The ladies-only course, Women Making Waves, offers the same curriculum and is the perfect opportunity to spend a half-day learning boat-handling techniques in a supportive environment. It’s offered both days at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
Class size is limited to four students per vessel, ensuring each student gets sufficient time at the helm under the watchful eye of a U.S. Coast Guard-certified instructor.
The goal of the BoatUS Foundation courses is to address the high costs typically associated with at-the-helm training, making hands-on boating education more accessible. The courses also offer area residents the chance to try out recreational boating and give boaters the opportunity to brush up on their boat-handling skills.
As an added benefit, all course takers receive a one-year boat launch ramp and recreation area pass from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Space is limited. Must be 18 years or older. To sign up for a course or seek out others, go to BoatUS.org/On-Water.

John's Boat Harbor

Mississippi River at UMR 231.8


If your boat needs spring tuning bring it’ to the flood office of John’s Boats Harbor.
Not real busy and can get you taken care of so when the water goes down you are ready to play


As the water inches up on its way down to New Orleans, we are
pretty sure that Highway C will have several inches of water, especially from B & C. So as usual, Nancy and I have left the sinking ship like the little rodents.
We have moved the office to our house, so now we are at the begining of the road. So come and see us, drop your boat off for repair, pay a bill or just say hello. The guys will probably be up here from Wednesday on. Its business
as usual, phones are being answered so give us a call if you need anything. So for now, come and see us at the begining of the road., LOL
