...GLACIER DAMMED LAKE ON THE SNOW RIVER WHICH FLOWS INTO KENAI
LAKE IS RELEASING...

THE SNOW GLACIER DAMMED LAKE HAS RELEASED. WATER LEVELS ON THE
SNOW RIVER ARE CRESTING TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND WILL BEGIN FALLING
OVERNIGHT AND INTO WEDNESDAY. WATER LEVELS ON KENAI LAKE ARE
RISING AND ARE EXPECTED TO CREST EARLY WEDNESDAY AT A STAGE OF
ROUGHLY 10.75 FEET...WHICH IS BELOW ACTION STAGE. SMALLER RISES
ARE EXPECTED ON THE KENAI RIVER TOWARD THE END OF THIS WEEK. NO
FLOODING IS EXPECTED.

A GLACIER DAMMED LAKE RELEASE IS A NATURALLY OCCURRING PROCESS.
IN THE HEADWATERS OF THE SNOW RIVER THE SNOW GLACIER IMPOUNDS A
LAKE. OVER TIME PRECIPITATION AND MELTING GLACIAL ICE CAUSE THE
LAKE LEVEL TO RISE. WHEN THE LAKE IS SUFFICIENTLY FILLED...IT
CAUSES A SMALL PART OF THE GLACIER TO LIFT...THUS DRAINING THE
LAKE. THE SNOW GLACIER DAMMED LAKE TYPICALLY DRAINS EVERY OTHER
FALL.

FORECAST ESTIMATES OF PEAK STAGE AND TIMING WILL BE UPDATED ON THE
ALASKA-PACIFIC RIVER FORECAST CENTER WEBSITE: APRFC.ARH.NOAA.GOV.
