ADDISON COUNTY — Late last week, county residents living near streams, rivers and lakes watched with bated breath as water levels climbed in some spots to record-breaking heights.

On Thursday, levels in Lake Champlain topped out at 102.36 feet above sea level, then began to slowly decline. Following more rain in the area late that night, water levels hit 102.64 on Friday. Those levels were far above the flood stage of 100 feet, and they exceeded the previous record lake height of 102.1 feet, set in 1869.
