...INCREASED RELEASES OUT OF GARRISON DAM...

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has announced a 2000 cubiuc feet
per second increase in discharge from Garrison Dam beginning
today. This will put the total release from Garrison Dam at 48,000
cfs. Downstream areas, such as the Bismarck and Mandan area, will
see an increase of about 0.3 feet in water levels. Missouri River
levels at the Bismarck gage have been between 11.0 and 11.2 feet
as of late and this new discharge suggests river stages may range
as high as 11.5 ft well into the first half of November.

...SNOW MELT CONTINUES ACROSS THE JAMES RIVER VALLEY...

High temperatures in the low to mid 50s are forecast across the
James River Valley Thursday and Friday. The melt run off will
peak during this period reaching rivers and streams.

Those across the Pipestem Creek watershed should expect river and
stream rises to continue through the rest of the week and into
the weekend.

Depending on the releases from the Jamestown and Pipestem
reservoirs, further rises on the James river are possible, from
Jamestown south through Lamoure in Lamoure county.

Overland flooding is also possible, especially in areas of poor
drainage. See www.weather.gov/bis for the latest updates.
