Mouse River Flows to Hit Highest Levels of 2014

Posted: Updated:

Heavy rains across north-central North Dakota have forced water managers to increase releases from Lake Darling Dam.

The higher releases began today, with 1,000 cubic feet per second being sent downstream on the Mouse River.


Frank Durbian of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says the plan currently calls for Lake Darling Dam releases to increase to 1,500 CFS Monday, 2,000 CFS Tuesday, and 2,500 CFS Wednesday.


Durbian says those plans are subject to change based on new information.  He says Canadian water managers are not expecting to increase releases from Rafferty and Alameda Dams until Wednesday at the earliest.


The highest releases from Lake Darling Dam so far in 2014 were around 1,350 CFS.
