During the winter, the Corps will closely monitor conditions throughout the basin and make reservoir regulation adjustments to lessen the impact of river ice formation. Gavins Point Dam releases averaged 38,300 cfs for the month of November. Flows were reduced to 17,000 cfs between Dec. 1 and 8. All winter releases will be made through the powerhouse.
The annual Northwestern USACE Navigation meeting will be held on 10 February 2014.
