  Spring might be too high
  Posted by: pblanc on Apr-28-13 6:36 AM (EST)

As of this AM, the Spring River is running about 10 1/2'. It looks as if it just peaked and is starting down but there is a 30% chance of rain for the area today.

American Whitewater rates anything over 7 1/2' (which corresponds to over 3000 cfs) as "too high". The Spring may or may not be below that by midday tomorrow.

I have no idea what the Spring looks like at 7 1/2' but my concern is that some of those ordinarily benign 2 and 3 foot ledge drops might have some wicked hydraulics with what amounts to twice the volume of a normal Ocoee River release flowing over them.
