The rain needs to stop

I'm starting to get very concerned about flooding. The Corps of Engineers needs to release more water from the dam at the Coralville Res. It really shouldn't take a public relations campaign for them to do so. The Res will have raised about 20 feet in a week projected (before the last stroms) to get to 701, which is just 11 feet below the spillway.  I spent some of the Labor Day weekend last night studying river gauges and in/out flows. This is what a Supervisor does when everyone else in the house goes to sleep.

The rain needs to stop.
