Gavins Point Dam Releases

As they prepare for the 2019 runoff season officials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are confident that adequate storage in the reservoir system will be available to handle that additional water.

Hydraulic Engineer Nicole Shorney says due to above average temperatures snow pack throughout our region at present is very light.

Hydraulic Engineer Joel Knofczynski says releases from Gavins Point Dam have been increased ahead of this spring’s run-off.

Corps officials are forecasting run-off from the upper Missouri River basin for 2019 to be near average at twenty-five-point-seven million acre feet.
