The US Army Corps of Engineers will be decreasing releases from the Garrison Dam due to continued, widespread drought conditions in the upper Midwest.
Stakeholders using the Missouri River in the Bismarck-Mandan area need to be aware of the releases which is likely to make boat ramps and river access unusable.
Anyone with boats, recreational vehicles, or docks in the river should monitor conditions and remove them prior to flow reductions causing restricted access.
Release levels will not change should any vehicles or equipment become stranded.
Scheduled water flow reductions:
- 21,000 cfs (current daily average release)
- 18,000 cfs (September 12th)
- 16,000 cfs (September 16th)
- 13,000 cfs (TBD in September)
