REPUBLICAN CITY, Neb. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District Harlan County Dam Project Office is alerting the public to intermittent temporary road closures on the bridge over the Harlan County Dam through May 14, 2017.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Kansas City District announced today the upcoming closure of the roadway over Harry S. Truman Dam beginning approximately Sept. 21.
The third highest inflows ever recorded at a river gage upstream of Wilson Lake raised the water level by almost seven feet, helping the lake replenish from the effects of a five-year drought. Heavy rains from a Sept. 2 storm produced inflows at the Saline River gage north of Russell, Kan. of nearly 23,000 cubic feet per second. This brought the lake to 1.28 feet above the normal water level, and one foot above the seasonal water level management plan target.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Kansas City District Harlan County Lake Project Office announces the annual waterfowl blind drawing. The 2016-2017 drawing is Sept. 11, at 8:00 a.m. at the Project Office at Harlan County Lake, 70788 Corps Road A, Republican City, NE., 68971.
