The Susquehanna River Basin Commission was in town this morning to collect water samples from the Susquehanna River. According to the Commission's website, "The mission of the Commission . . . is to enhance public welfare through comprehensive planning, water supply allocation, and management of the water resources of the Susquehanna River Basin."
Two workers from the commission used a fish-shaped receptacle to collect river water.
They took several samples by lowering the receptacle from the Veterans Memorial Bridge.
Water levels at Columbia River Park this morning had receded slightly compared to last night.
