USACE Missouri River Release Update

by DC Staff


OMAHA, NE - Higher-than-average releases from all System projects, including Gavins Point, will continue through the summer and fall. "Due to the water currently being stored in the reservoirs and the higher-than-average runoff being forecast in the Missouri River Basin above Sioux City, Iowa, Gavins Point releases will remain near 58,000 cfs for the remainder of the navigation season to ensure evacuation of all stored flood waters prior to next year's runoff season," said John Remus, Chief of the Missouri River Basin Water Management Division. The 2018 runoff forecast in the Missouri River Basin above Sioux City, Iowa, is 39.8 million acre feet (MAF), 157 percent of average according to the Corps. July runoff was 5.1 MAF, 155 percent of normal.
