Hydrologist says the river is fine for now

One of the hottest topics is localized high water on the Des Moines River after a fairly wet spring.

Area hydrologist Tom Kresko of the Minnesota DNR office in Windom noted that the river level, which was 17.32 feet on Tuesday, is falling.

“It peaked in Jackson on May 24,” Kresko said. “And it peaked here (in Windom) on May 27.”
