Monroe, Patoka Reservoirs Over 90% Full

Last updated on Friday, April 11, 2008

(BEDFORD) - Area reservoirs are getting closer to capacity.

The Army Corps of Engineers has released information that both the Patoka and Monroe Resevoirs have passed the 90% full mark.

Monroe Resevoir is at 90% capacity and Patoka is at 92%.

Patoka Lake and Lake Monroe have both fallen a little over a tenth of a foot due to controlled releases into their reservoirs, however, that may change with last night's storms and the rain we have forecasted through Sunday. Road flooding conditions continue to improve, however.

One more road in Perry County has re-opened and IN-450 from Williams to Shoals has been open for several days now, however, IN-337 between Orleans and Livonia is still listed as having flooding issues.
