A
The drought in the Upper Missouri River Basin has reduced the inflows into the Missouri
Downstream river.

Missouri
John Remus, River Basin Director of Water Management, US Army Corps of
Engineers are warning water users along the Missouri River to prepare for subsidence
River and reservoir levels.

“The
Corps of Engineers understands the importance of the Missouri River in
Providing water for irrigation, municipal and industrial purposes across the region
Basin, ”Remus told a conference call. “There will be enough water in the water
Reservoirs and in the river are enough to meet all water supply needs. “

Remus
says the corps usually adds water to storage in Upper Missouri
Reservoirs in March and April.

“We
I haven’t added any water since March 23, ”says Remus. “What was
We give up water and it is not replenished by the drain. “

Kevin
Grode, a Corps engineer, says soil conditions are upstream along the
Missouri, like North Dakota and Montana, is extremely dry by April
offer little to no relief.

“April
The runoff was 1.3 million acres, which is less than 50% of the average, ”said Grode
Reports. “It was the 8th lowest April in 123 years
to keep. “

Grode
It is estimated that the outflow into the reservoirs upstream of the Missouri River will be below
Average this summer.

“While
May, June and July, upper basin forecast, upper basin outflow forecast
being below average due to the slightly below average mountain snowpack, dry
Soil moisture conditions and extended prospects for warm and dry climates ”, so
to Grode.

The
The Corps has maintained a release rate of 28,700 cubic meters from Gavins Point Dam
Feet per second. It is planned to increase this rate to 29,500 to preserve Missouri
River levels appropriate for water supplies and shipping.
