OMAHA. Neb. — Flow down the Missouri River will be slowed by the end of the workweek.

Releases from Gavins Point Dam will be reduced to 33,000 cubic feet per second on Friday following a reduction in forecast 2020 upper basin runoff.

The US Army Corps of Engineers are reporting precipitation in the upper basin has been well below normal, which has led to a reduction in the runoff forecast.

Some areas of the Dakotas received less than half of their normal precipitation during the first four months of 2020.
