High water may greet paddlers at 51st Kenduskeag race

BANGOR, Maine — Paddlers hoping for high water during this year’s 51st Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race may get their wish, as midweek stream levels hovered near a 17-year high with a significant rainstorm predicted.

“I think we couldn’t ask for better weather than what’s happening this year,” said race director Debbie Gendreau, the assistant director of Bangor Parks and Recreation. “Yes, it was a little scary a couple of weeks ago, thinking that [the race] might not happen [because of ice], but with the weather warming up, it’s absolutely wonderful.”

Gendreau said she’s hoping water levels remain on the high side of normal for the 16.5-mile race, which begins in Kenduskeag village at 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
