More updates on the water shortage along the Missouri River

OMAHA, N.E.(WNAX)- The impact of the northern plain’s drought is reflected in the falling levels of the Missouri River reservoirs.

Mike Swenson with the Corps of Engineers in Omaha says the system water storage continues to decrease.

Swenson says the big reservoirs are also forecast to continue to fall.

Swenson says system releases through Gavins Point Dam will remain steady for the next few weeks.

Swenson says they are predicting total runoff into the system this year at about sixty percent of normal.
