The river level has peaked in Piqua and Troy, but is expected to continue to rise slightly from Dayton to Hamilton.
MCD staff is continuing to monitor the river levels and will take action as needed. Staff closed the storm sewer floodgates in Piqua, Middletown and Hamilton. The floodgates are at the end of storm sewers and typically remain open. Staff close the floodgates to prevent the river from backing up into storm sewers and cities.
