Dam Flows Increased

The out flows of Gavins Point Dam on the Missouri River near Yankton have increased to over thirty two thousand cubic feet per second. That’s up from the early summer flows of around twenty thousand cubic feet per second.

Gavins Point Operations Manager Dave Becker says it’s getting dry downstream…

Becker says they are using the spillway because they can’t max out the power plant right now…

Becker says they expect the higher flows to continue for some time…

The Corps of Engineers has also increased flows from the other dams above Gavins Point to keep the water flowing downstream.
