On March 13th and 14th, the river flooded its banks in downtown Fond du Lac. The flooding was a result of ice jams under the main bridges that cross the river in the city. Evacuation efforts were put in place, as crews worked to remove the ice. Multiple state and local groups helped with the recovery.
