DAYTON, Ohio – Freezing rain mixed with snow in the forecast will cause the Great Miami River to rise.

2 NEWS spoke with the Miami Conservancy district to see how they monitor water levels.

“We work closely with the Ohio River Forecast Center in Wilmington office. Our gauging data goes to them, they do the modeling and the forecasting. This is the time of year where we’re watching things really closely” said Mike Ekberg, Miami Conservancy manager of water resources, monitoring and analysis.

The conservancy refers to this time of year as ‘high water season’. They say it’s normal to see rising waters as we transition from winter to spring. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
