Corp Of Engineers Slow Missouri Releases

Releases from Gavins Point Dam on the Missouri River near Yankton have been cut back this week.  Dave Becker is Operations Manager for the Corps of Engineers at Gavins Point…

River levels have dropped about three feet below the dam. Becker says Ft Randall dam upstream has also cut back on their releases…

Becker says all the extra water may mean a longer navigation season from Sioux City downstream…

Higher than normal releases may continue later this year to draw down the reservoirs to winter levels.
