Rising river


Images from Sarah Schofield show what’s happening in Chatham today in terms of the rising Thames River, which is expected to peak overnight tonight or early Thursday morning.

In Chatham, the diversion channel dam is currently closed as flood waters from the Thames River have backed up the diversion all the way past its inlet and into McGregor Creek upstream.

The Sixth Street dam and pumping station in downtown Chatham at the mouth of McGregor Creek is also currently being operated to prevent the Thames River from backing up McGregor and Indian Creeks and flooding nearby properties on the south side of Chatham.
