Gavins Point Dam and Precautions on Flooding

YANKTON – The Army Corps of Engineers increased water releases to 150,000 cubic feet per second due to floods back in 2011 at Gavins Point Dam.

For the next upcoming months, water releases from Gavins Point Dam and other Missouri River reservoirs will stay at exceptional levels to remove any runoff that remains above normal.

According to the federal Emergency Management Agency Receiving timely information about weather conditions or other emergency events can make a difference in knowing when to take action to be safe.

Learning whether you live, work, or travel through areas that are prone to flooding could potentially help you protect yourself before or during a flood.
