Saginaw River Report - April 13th

We are still awaiting the arrival of the first commercial delivery of the season here on the Saginaw River.  Algoway was scheduled to arrive at the North Star dock in Essexville on the 10th to unload potash, but due to the weather, she has not yet been able to make it in.  Winds and extremely heavy rains have the Saginaw River currents churning.  Flood stage is 17 feet and the Saginaw is currently at 20.83 feet with the outflow at 41,100 cubic feet per second.

Some changes of note along the river:  The Essroc cement terminal in Essexville is now the Lafarge cement terminal.  Next door, at what was the Essexville Lafarge stone dock, it is now the Burroughs North stone dock.
