Sudbury River in Saxonville Above Flood Stage; Warning Issued Through Sunday

FRAMINGHAM – The National Weather Service extended its flood warning for the Sudbury River in Saxonville through Sunday afternoon.

At 2:15 a.m., the river was at 10.1 feet.

Flood stage is at 10 feet.

The river will continue rising to near 10.2 feet by  6 a.m.

The river will fall below flood stage hopefully on Sunday morning.

“The Sudbury River is a concern,” said Framingham Highway Director Dan Nau.

“We are working with the MWRA on the river,” said Nau, who said he has trucks, crews, and sand bags set to keep the damage to a minimum.

Nau said the work on singletary has helped the problem on the road, due to the rain, but another 1 to 3 inches is a concern, as well.

Flooding from the Sudbury River is affecting low lying areas along the river in Wayland, including a portion of Shore Road and Pelham Island Road near Heards Pond.

There is a gate at the dam in saxonville, but adjusting it could increase flooding in Wayland and Sudbury.
