...MISSOURI RIVER ON THE RISE FROM RELEASES OUT OF GARRISON DAM...

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has produced an updated release
schedule for water out of Garrison Dam. By Saturday, June 23rd,
the Corps will be releasing a total of 60,000 cubic feet per
second out of Garrison Dam. This will result in the highest water
levels downstream of the dam since 2011. However, the expected
stage of around 13 feet should not create major problems in the
Bismarck and Mandan area. At a stage of 13 feet, impacts will
mostly be limited to shoreline erosion, decreased access for
recreational activities, and an increased potential for septic
tank problems or sump pump use. Recreational users of the river
should also be on the lookout for hazardous boating conditions as
logs and other debris will seen on the river.
