Water Report

Well, it’s probably time for a water report for the southern Rutland area.    Water has been backing up on the south side of town and yesterday it was about to go over the top of Cooper Street/County #3, just east of Main Street.  Taking quick action, the City Council asked to have the drain cleared and last night there was Calvin with the Track-Hoe clearing out the drains.  This morning the water had receded and the water from town headed south  two miles to connect to the Wild Rice River.  The Wild Rice itself has been rising and falling, changing daily.  The new County culverts are holding steady while various township roads have fallen to the mighty force of water and some days the road is passable and the next day it may be submerged.  It’s not the time to take a late night cruise ’cause one never knows which road will get you home.
