Corps: Oahe Reservoir Will Have Sufficient Water



Bookmark and Share

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says there will be enough water available in the Oahe Reservoir for local use despite a continuing drought.
 
Less water is expected in the reservoir because of the drought and below-normal snowpack.
 
The corps' Jody Farhat says more water will be left in the Oahe Reservoir for the spring fish spawn.
 
Higher flows will be discharged from the reservoir later in summer, but Farhat says there will be enough left for recreation and irrigation.
 
Farhat says decisions made will be made on water management issues such as the extension of boat ramps.
 
The corps says winter runoff into the river above Sioux City, Iowa, will only be 80 percent of normal for this year.
