than to low lying farmland and access roads to oil well sites near
Trenton. The city of Williston does not flood. With cool temperatures
expected the next few days, the river is expected to fall below
flood stage by Thursday. However, this is early in the melt season
for the mountain snowpack and there is a risk of higher water in late
May and June.
