The problems at the North Dakota-Manitoba border where the Mouse River exits the state are happening even before increased water flows from Lake Darling have arrived there.
Those higher releases, rather than increasing to 25-hundred, remained at two thousand cubic feet per second today at Lake Darling Dam.
That's a change in plans because it appears more water than expected in Canada flowed east - downstream of Lake Darling.
Officials say the two thousand CFS releases should continue through mid-July, to bring Lake Darling down to its desired level.
That means places like Sherwood and Minot no longer have river forecasts since the levels will stay well below flood stage.
