The main river ice moved Monday from Sleetmute down to Red Devil, and then this morning, it moved below Red Devil to an area known as Eight Mile. Water rose to bank full at Red Devil and then receded. Below that, most of the Kuskokwim river remains pretty intact. That’s the word from the River Watch team, which continues to conduct aerial surveys from Aniak. Eric Holloway is part of that team. He’s a hydrologist or water scientist with the National Weather Service.
