Meeting For Dakota Dunes Residents Monday

May 30, 2011, 3:04 PM

Meeting For Dakota Dunes Residents Monday
DAKOTA DUNES, SD - All residents in Dakota Dunes are being asked to make plans to evacuate later this week if water from the Missouri River flows into town.

Governor Dennis Daugaard says every property owner in Dakota Dunes should assume the worst and act now to protect their possessions. People are being told they should expect to be away from their homes for as long as two months.

The Corps of Engineers projects that once water releases a maximum flow of 150,000 cubic feet per second (CFS) from Gavins Point Dam in Yankton, water levels in Dakota Dunes will reach 1,098 feet above sea level. That means protective measures should be built to 1,100 feet above sea level.

The Corps plans to gradually release more water from Gavins Point starting on Monday and continue through the week. Beginning next week, the releases will increase more rapidly and by mid-June, the maximum of 150,000 CFS will be reached.

There will be a special meeting for residents only at 5:30 p.m. Monday at Dunes Country Club.
