Ft. Calhoun Flood Level Data

This seems to be the question of the week. How high are the waters at Ft. Calhoun supposed to go?

Ft. Calhoun’s documented flood protection goes up to 1014 above sea level. No idea what this translates into actual height above flood level on the river, can’t find that piece of data.

The Corps estimated crest (this may be old data now) 1004 above sea level at Ft. Calhoun

Omaha Power claims this means a 3 to 6 foot river rise. Govt. records match that estimate.

KCAU is reporting flood waters of 2 feet higher than expected but doesn’t quantify this statement with existing reports or levels.

Gauges at Blair, NE (closest station to Ft. Calhoun) shows 31.5 current level.
NOAA flood data at Blair, NE

No details of height difference between Blair station and Ft Calhoun NPP. Forecasts at Blair show a crest of 31.5 but Ft. Calhoun is already at that level and Gavins point dam is still doing significant releases. Gavins point is not giving any predictions now.
