[ARCHIVED] The Cedar River Is At Flood Stage

As rain continues to fall in north central Iowa, Cedar Falls residents should be alert to the rising level of the Cedar River. As of Thursday afternoon, the river is nearly at flood stage and is expected to crest more than four feet over flood stage sometime late Sunday or early Monday.  

There are a number of resources available on this website that provide detailed information regarding flooding in our community.  The Flood Information page provides links to a Flood Brochure and the current and predicted Cedar River level.   The link to the Flood Information page is found on the left side of the home page or can be found at

  • The Flood Brochure lists detailed information regarding various Cedar River levels and the impact of each on the surrounding area.  Printed copies of the brochure are available at City Hall.
  • The Cedar River Information (Hydrograph) link displays a graphic representation of the current Cedar River level as provided by the National Weather Service.  When the level is high, the predicted level is also shown.  Inundation mapping capability was recently added to this site to selectively display the areas affected by each rise in river level.

Citizens are encouraged to subscribe to flood announcements by using the Notify Me link provided on each page of the City's website.  

If you encounter water over roadways, remember to
Turn Around, Don't Drown.
