Corps reduces releases from Missouri River dams due to lower runoff

Omaha, Neb. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Missouri River Basin Water Management Division is reducing releases from the four lower Missouri River dams because drier conditions in October have reduced runoff into the reservoir system, resulting in faster evacuation of stored flood water. Releases were increased earlier this fall following heavy rains in the upper Missouri River Basin. The 2014 calendar year runoff forecast is 34.7 million acre feet (MAF), 138 percent of normal, which is down 0.8 MAF from one month ago. Average annual runoff is 25.2 MAF.
