Subject: Discontinuation of river forecast services for the Kankakee
River gauge near Kouts, Indiana

Effective December 15, 2020, river forecast services for the
Kankakee River gauge near Kouts, Indiana, (NWS identifier KTSI3)
will be discontinued. Flood warnings will continue to be issued for
river flooding along the affected portions of the Kankakee River in
Jasper and Porter Counties, Indiana, but will be based upon the
river gauge at Dunns Bridge, Indiana (NWS identifier DBRI3).

On and after December 15th, the Dunns Bridge gauge will represent
the Kankakee River from US-421 south of La Crosse downstream to near
I-65 and De Motte. River forecasts will be issued when this location
has reached, or is expected to reach, action stage.

Forecast and warning information is available from the
NOAA/NWS Chicago web page at as well as the
NOAA/NWS Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service (AHPS) web page
