BELOIT - River levels are slowly decreasing in the Stateline Area but areas of flooding will remain for a while.

The Rock River at Afton, north of Beloit, was at 10.65 feet this morning, down only slightly from Tuesday when it was at 10.72 feet. Flood minor stage for that portion of the river is 9 feet and moderate flood stage is 11 feet.

The Rock River at Rockton was at 12.28 feet this morning, only slightly down from 12.34 feet on Tuesday. Moderate flood stage for that portion of the river is 11 feet and major flood stage is 14 feet.

River levels are expected to continue dropping through the weekend, even though additional chance of rainfall remains in the forecast.

Settlers Park in Rockton, Riverside Park in Roscoe and City Park in South Beloit remain flooded.

Trees and brush that has been swept down Turtle Creek have piled up at a railroad bridge near Nature at the Confluence in South Beloit. South Beloit Fire Chief Mike Davenport had previously told the Beloit City Council, this buildup of trees and brush could present a problem if it continues to grow, and he has been in contact with the railroad to see if it can assist in removing the debris.
