Missouri River Management

Boaters, Marinas Frustrated With River Levels........


The water levels along the Missouri River are falling, causing boaters to become upset with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for their decision to decrease the releases from the Garrison Dam.


Reportedly, the river levels began dropping approximately two weeks ago after the Corps reduced releases from the Garrison Dam to 13,000 cubic feet per second.


The lower river levels are causing problems for boaters and marina owners alike, as in many cases, boaters cannot get out onto the river.  Several public and private boat ramps have been forced to close........
