Hydrology

In South Dakota, flooding is typically a result of runoff from excess rainfall during the spring, summer and fall seasons, or runoff from melting snow during the spring.  Flooding can occur as a result of localized precipitation, or flooding can occur due to excess precipitation occurring outside the region but resulting in elevated river levels flowing downstream from areas where the excess precipitation occurred.

Clay County has the Vermillion River running from North to South through the center of the county along with the Missouri River acting as the Southern border between South Dakota and Nebraska. Both rivers play a role in day to day activities for the residents of the County.
