  • Reservoir system prepared for 2019 runoff season

    All 2018 stored flood waters were evacuated from the Missouri River mainstem reservoir system (System) as of Jan. 29. The full 16.3 million acre-feet (MAF) of designated flood control storage is available to manage 2019 runoff. “The System stands ready to capture spring runoff, reducing flood risk while providing support to other authorized project purposes. Current Gavins Point releases are 20,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) and will be decreased to 17,000 cfs by mid-February,” said John Remus, Chief of the Corps’ Missouri River Basin Water Management Division.
