Everything you need to know about Iowa River levels

Because many of our waterways will reach or exceed major flood stage, we want to make sure you find all of the river forecast information you’re looking for. Below, the forecast crest graphs from the National Weather Service and the impact that level of flooding will have on surrounding areas.

The Iowa River takes in all of the water from the Cedar River. For that reason, no flooding is expected upriver of the confluence of these two rivers. A Flood Warning is in effect for the following areas.
