2013 Elite Series Alabama River Charge presented by Star brite
Alabama River - Montgomery, AL, May 9 - 12, 2013

Water flow and levels changing

10:42 am CDT, May 12, 2013 | By Trip Weldon

At the start of the Alabama River Charge presented by Star brite, the water flow in downtown Montgomery was around 81,000 CFS. According to data charts, it is now down to 48,600 CFS. The elevation mark at the Northern Bypass in Montgomery is at 24 feet, where it was above 29 feet during the first two days of competition. Alabama Power charts show water slowing down significantly starting late today. Without any significant rainfall this week, I do not think anyone thought the flow would maintain at what it has been. The charts show the major amount of rain was toward northeast Alabama late last week.
