River Rapid Deployment Gauges

Posted: Updated:

The North Dakota Water Commission is installing gauges along the Mouse and Des Lacs rivers in northern North Dakota to help monitor possible flooding.

Three of the rapid deployment gauges were placed this past week along the Mouse River in Minot, Burlington and west of Mohall.

Two gauges are set to be deployed along the Des Lacs River within a week.

The two rivers are expected to exceed flood stage in many rural areas this spring.

Brad Sether of the U.S. Geological Survey Water Science Center in Bismarck says the gauges have satellite technology that provides flood forecasters with up-to-date information.

Current water releases out of Canada total 1470 cfs and those releases are expected to increase on Monday.

Lake Darling Dam releases are holding at 800 cfs.
