Flood Waters Rush Over Dam at I&M Canal

Melting snow, rain, flood waters—it must be springtime in Channahon and Minooka.

Light rain and melting snow raised the level of many area rivers to at or near flood stages Monday.

At the I&M State Trail Bridge Street access area in Channahon, waters poured over the dam near the Des Plaines River.

A flood warning remained in effect for the Des Plaines River at Riverside, affecting Cook County, according to the National Weather Service.

Drier conditions Tuesday-Thursday are expected to alleviate flood concerns, though.
