Significant rain over the Susitna Valley this weekend has

expected to continue through Monday. The heavy rain has caused
water levels to rise on on the Yetna, Chulitna, Susitna and

Recreators should use caution when planning trips around small
streams and rivers and consider alternate plans if water levels
are higher than normal.
