The City of Cedar Falls wants to make residents aware of the projected river level of the Cedar River. Staff has started the process of following our flood emergency preparedness procedures. 

The Cedar River is projected to hit 91.5 feet on Wednesday, June 24, 2020*. At this level, water covers the bike path at George Wyth Park as well as the road at 1712 and 1118 Cottage Row Road, the north half of Tourist Park, and Riverside Drive south of Beech Street.  Water also covers Big Woods Road south of Dunkerton Road, the north parking lot of Island Park, and portions of Lake Street. 

City staff will continue to monitor the river levels and provide press releases as needed with updated information. 

Flood information can be found on the City’s webpage at https://www.cedarfalls.com/812/Flood-Information. The webpage also provides a link to monitor river levels and current projections. A brochure is available online which includes what to do to prepare for a flood and streets that may be affected. These can also be picked up in the City Hall lobby. If you will be entering City Hall, please be sure to follow the posted COVID-19 precautions including wearing a mask and abiding by the social distancing markers that are in place. 

Please contact City Hall at (319) 273-8600 for more information or with any questions.
