Lower Kenai River stabilizes

The lower Kenai River below the Soldotna bridge has stabilized with no flooding expected, according to the Kenai Peninsula Borough Office of Emergency Management.


Despite the river’s dynamic system, recent cold weather seems to have stabilized the conditions to a point where significant flooding is not likely. However, the possibility of minor flooding can occur as conditions change.


Stabilization was determined through a review of historical river gauge records undertaken by the Alaska Pacific Forecast Center and observations of local conditions. The Office of Emergency Management will continue to make periodic checks of the river’s conditions.
