Corps says all flood storage space available in Missouri River reservoir

OMAHA, Neb. (WNAX) – In their first report of the year, the Corps of Engineers says all the flood storage space in the Missouri River reservoirs is available.

Joel Knofczynski, an engineer in the Corps Omaha office, updated the water storage space.

Knofczynski says they expect hydropower production from the mainstem dams to be slightly above the long term trend.

Knofczynski says system releases will stay low for the next few weeks.

Some towns in Missouri are complaining that low river levels are causing issues for their water supplies.
