On the Mouse River, the main reservoirs that provide flood protection for North Dakotans have reached their desired levels.
Now, it's a matter of waiting for the melt to begin and seeing if the projections made by hydrologists pan out.
Lake Darling reached 1,592 feet today.
The management manual for the river prescribes a level of 1,593, but it was dropped an extra foot after the City of Minot asked the Corps of Engineers to bring the lake below the required level.
Mayor Curt Zimbelman said he has pressured the Corps to drop that a foot farther, but Corps officials refused.
In Canada, the level of Alameda reservoir stands at 557.5 meters - well below the required target of 561 meters, but still about one-and-a-half meters higher than it was before the snow melt begin in 2011.
At Rafferty reservoir, the level is now 547.7 meters - again below the requirement.
But Rafferty has now been brought down slightly below the level where it stood two years ago before the snow began melting.
Also, river levels downstream of Lake Darling will soon begin to drop, as the Corps has reduced the outflow from the dam to 1700 CFS.
Hydrologists have said the snowpack in southern Saskatchewan is higher in moisture content than it was two years ago.
