Corps still dealing with high levels in Missouri River reservoirs

OMAHA, Neb. (WNAX) – The Corps of Engineers is struggling with high levels in the Missouri River reservoirs and time is running out to get them to winter storage stages.

John Remus, Chief of the Missouri River Basin Water Management Office in Omaha, says their focus is still on flood control and safety.

Remus says they are aware of the damages caused by the high water.

Remus says each run off year is unique.

The Corps will maintain releases from Gavins Point Dam at 80,000 cubic feet per second through November before rapidly stepping them down by mid-December.
