As of this morning the West Branch is very muddy here at Shehawken. Things are better above Deposit, but the reservoir is spilling. Pepacton is spilling as well, bumping the temps on the East Branch at Harvard to 70!  Hopefully a couple dry days will calm things down. For more information on the train derailment go to The release out of Cannonsville remains at 1500cfs. Today’s forecast is calling for  a high/low of 84*/64* with partly cloudy skies and winds out of the WNW at 5-15.
