With the recent warm weather and melting of the snow pack, the Rock River in Watertown has risen and is over its banks.  The level is expected to rise over the weekend and cause some flooding.  The Street Department has sand and sandbags at the S. Second Street entrance if residents are in need of them due to the rising water.  The Street Department will have personnel monitoring the outflows throughout the evening into Friday.  The Fire Department urges caution by the river.  The ice is not safe and melting conditions can cause a hazard.  Please report any flooding conditions to the Police Department at (920) 261-6660.
