By noon Wednesday, the water level was recorded at the level of 5.10 meters.
In Paris officially declared orange severity.
Exceptionally heavy rains have caused power outages and forced about 400 evacuations from homes elsewhere on the Seine after it and other French rivers burst their banks.
Although that is below the 20 feet reached two years ago, when two people in the Paris area died and several were injured in flooding, it could still cause problems for transport and those living on the river's banks.
"Because of climate change, we can expect floods in the Seine basin to be at least as frequent as they are right now", Florence Habets, a senior researcher at the France's national center for scientific research, told the newspaper. The circulation of the RER C train is completely interrupted in the stretch that runs alonside the Seine, a measure that authorities made a decision to extend until January 31.
The statue of a Crimean soldier - known as the Zouave - on the Pont de l'Alma has always been used as a marker for water levels in the city.

Blast reported near Save the Children aid group office in Afghanistan
Local TV footage showed a huge plume of thick black smoke rising from the compound and at least one vehicle on fire. The incident comes just days after assailants stormed the Intercontinental Hotel in the capital of Kabul.
Those on flood alert are: Aube, Jura, Marne, Saône-et-Loire, Eure, Paris, Seine-et-Marne, Yvelines, Yonne, Hauts-de-Seine, Seine-Saint-Denis, Val-de-Marne, and Val-d'Oise.
By midday on Friday the water was up to the Zouave's thighs.
"No matter what we say, the more we reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, the more we reduce our impact on droughts and floods".

Levels are expected to stay just below the exceptional 6.1 metre floods seen in 2016.
However, authorities said on Saturday that the flooding won't be as bad as forecast earlier this week.
The situation is far more hard outside Paris.
