    Water managers for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Omaha District have released a Draft Report outlining proposed modifications to the Water Control Plan for Cherry Creek Dam during extreme flood events. The proposed plan allows water managers to release more water from the dam to reduce the risk of overtopping and failure. This video depicts a moduled scenario of the potential inundation if recommended changes to increase releases from Cherry Creek Dam to 7,000 cubic feet per second when the reservoir pool elevation reaches 5591.8 feet NAVD88 are implemented. The normal pool elevation is 5551.8 feet NAVD88 and average releases are between 10 and 100 cubic feet per second.
    “Extreme rainfall events occur, which is why we must have plans in place to address them,” said Kellie Bergman, Chief of Water Management for the Omaha District. However, it is important to note that the record reservoir elevation at Cherry Creek Dam is 25 feet below the recommended pool elevation that would trigger the high releases proposed in a modified water control plan, Bergman added.
