Corps Assesses Snow Pack

Corps Assesses Snow Pack

Posted: Updated:

Engineers from the Army Corps of Engineers are in the Mouse River Valley this weekend, inspecting snow and ice conditions along the river.

The scientists from the Corps will be checking to see if there has been any water flow from coulees along the river valley that feed into the Mouse River.

 

They are also looking at the condition of the ice and snow to determine how close the snowpack is to significant melting.

Corps officials say new readings downstream of Lake Darling Dam indicate the dam is releasing about 26-hundred cubic feet per second of water - slightly below the reported 28-hundred CFS of the past several days.

Still, with lower releases from Canada now reaching the lake, the level of Lake Darling has been dropping quickly in recent days.

It's now below 1592.7 feet, and water managers at the Corps predict it will drop to a bit below 15-92 by the middle of next week.

 

Hydrologists in the US and Canada say they are confident the reservoirs that provide flood protection along the Mouse River will then be at levels that will handle all of the snow and water that is expected to begin flowing into the system in the next week.
