Runoff to be above normal, but well contained

OMAHA, Neb. (WNAX) – Runoff into the Missouri River system is expected to be above normal again this year but well contained in the reservoir system.

Kevin Grode a lead in the river regulation office for the Corps of Engineers in Omaha says they have seen a few dry months.

Grode says their run off forecast has been reduced a bit.

Grode says they still expect above normal run off each month this year.

Above normal river releases all winter allowed the Corps to add more flood storage capacity in the upstream reservoirs.
