Navigation Weekly Update

The Missouri River Mainstem System Master Manual sets the navigation service level for the second half of the year based on the July 1 system storage. The July 1 storage check called for an increase in the service level for navigation flow support, as well as a full, eight-months of support. Flow support, which had been 3,000 cfs below full service from April to June, was increased to full service in July. Flow targets for the second half of the year will now range from 31,000 cfs at Sioux City, Iowa, to 41,000 cfs at Kansas City, Mo.  The increase in service level will provide a navigation channel 9 feet deep and 300 feet wide.
