Based on the July 1 system storage check (61.7 MAF), there will be full service navigation flows for the second half of the year. The storage check also resulted in expending flow support 10 days for the basic and upper basic predictions. This will extend flow support until approximately 10 Dec.

Winter releases from Gavins Point will be determined based on the September 1 storage check.

The Missouri River Basin Water Management (MRBWM) website, http://www.nwd-mr.usace.army.mil/rcc/ includes current conditions, forecast information, reports, copies of Annual Operating Plan information.

Depending on river levels maintenance on river structures is schedule to start in mid to late July. As river levels fall channel recon and surveys will resume to document conditions and evaluate any possible shoaling.
