Missouri River to remain high over winter

Local News

After our above average rainfall this summer, the Missouri River Authority and the Army Corp of Engineers are keeping a close eye on river levels in the area.

The two groups met at the Betty Strong Encounter Center Wednesday morning to discuss water trends and fish management strategies.

John Remus with the Water Management Division said to not be alarmed if the river levels seem higher than normal. 

“Its gonna be a very large run-off year. It’s going to be a top five, probably the third, largest run-off in 120 years of history, so I hope people take that into account when they start looking at the river and looking at the river and saying ‘What’s going on?’ that this is a very large run-off.”

Remus says the rivers will remain high throughout the winter.
