Water levels dropping

Water levels in the wetlands across from my house dropped a bit overnight.  We are now just under 79 feet above sea level.  I’d call it 78.95.  That is a drop of about 2 inches since yesterday.
 
We will have a slower recession that the rest of town, unfortunately, due to the bridge in Wilmington at Route 62 which does not allow water under it fast enough, and is not low enough for the water to overtop the roadway.  Looking at it yesterday, I’d estimate the upstream side is about 2-3 feet higher than the downstream, with water blasting through.
