Notice to Navigators: Missouri River

Gavins Point Releases Temporarily Increased


Gavins Point releases will be increased to 16,000 cfs at noon today in response to dropping river stages along the Missouri River. We plan to maintain 16,000 cfs until Tuesday, January 4 when releases will be reduced to 14,000 cfs and reduced again to 12,000 cfs on Wednesday, January 5. We will adjust releases as needed based on basin conditions. You can find our current lower river forecast at the link below. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.
