Corps Adjusts Dam Water Releases To Missouri River

Corps Adjusts Dam Water Releases To Missouri River
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Changes in the Missouri River levels caused by cold temperatures have forced the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to increase the amount of water being released out of Gavins Point dam on the South Dakota-Nebraska border.

The Corps says the dam has been releasing 16,000 cubic feet per second. The target winter release is 12,000 cubic feet per second.

The Corps adjusts the amount of water released from dams along the river in response to conditions.

The Corps says it expects to bring down the amount to less than 13,000 cubic feet per second in the next two weeks as milder temperatures move through the region.

Last year, releases were limited because the Corps was conserving water as the region recovered from drought. That affected barge traffic along the river.
