    • Missouri River Basin Water Management - Fort Peck Test Flows - Weekly Call - 06/12/24

      Test flows from Fort Peck Dam to comply with the 2018 Biological Opinion were scheduled to start increasing this week to 22,000 cfs. However, flow increases are delayed due to the Missouri River gage at Williston's forecast stage of 22.6 feet on June 15. A test protocol halts or delays release increases if the Williston gage is forecast to go about 22 feet.

      09/08/2023


    • Missouri River Basin Water Management - Call - 7/13/2023

      Above average rainfall and fast-melting snow led to above average runoff in the upper Missouri River Basin in June. Runoff above Sioux City, Iowa was 6.7 million acre-feet, which is 122% of average. The annual runoff forecast above Sioux City, Iowa is 29.2 MAF, 114% of average, and about 2.4 MAF higher than last month’s forecast.

    • Missouri River Basin Water Management - Call - 6/8/2023

      Warm temperatures in the mountainous region of the upper Missouri River Basin has led to a quick melt of the mountain snowpack. The rapid melting combined with precipitation in the western half of the Basin resulted in above-average inflow into the reservoir system. May runoff for the Basin above Sioux City, Iowa was 4.9 million acre-feet, 144% of average. "The warm temperatures in the northern Rockies has melted the snow earlier than is typical,” said John Remus, chief of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Missouri River Basin Water Management Division. “With much of the mountain snowpack already melted, the Basin will need additional rainfall to continue the trend of above-average runoff.”

      06/08/2023
