Kalida is getting closer to being able to watch flood levels in the village. The Putnam County Sentinel reports officials have been working with the National Weather Service, United States Geological Survey, and River Forecast Center in Wilmington, Ohio to develop a warning system. Police Chief Jim Gulker says a rain gauge will be installed at a monitoring station on the Ottawa River. Once installed, the gauge will provide data that will be able to warn about impending flooding.
The village will buy the equipment and be responsible for maintaining it.
The work is being done after there was no warning given for a flood in Kalida in mid-June of 2015.
