This time around, Wheatland is projected to hit flood stage Tuesday afternoon and crest in a couple days. While this flooding event isn’t expected to even come close to the historic levels they hit last July, Batzkall said this community is already tapped out.

The Fox River is expected to fall back below flood stage on Monday.
