Oahe Dam Releases Water With Rumbling Force

June 7, 2011, 1:15 PM by Austin Hoffman

Oahe Dam Releases Water With Rumbling Force
PIERRE, SD - There's more water spilling over the Oahe Dam than ever before.

The dam's six gates are releasing water on the Missouri River at the maximum rate of 110,000 cubic feet per second. The rest of the water is coming through the power plant where the dam creates electricity at 40,000 CFS.

KELOLAND's Austin Hoffman says when standing near the stilling basin, you can feel the vibrations from the force of the water. To watch his live report from the Oahe Dam with our KELOLAND Live Backpack, click on the player to the right.
