Harrison County Emergency Management has recently released some information regarding Gavins Point Dam and river gauges.
Here is the report in its entirety:
Clearing conditions are forecast, but the threat of flooding continues. Hwy 30 still has barricades from MV to Dunlap, I-29 is open to the Loveland/I-680 eastbound exit, I-680 EB is open to I-80.
As of last night, the Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) has raised the output from Gavins Point Dam on the Missouri River to 90,000 CFS. This is a very large increase (without warning to us downstream) and impacts will be felt. I am including a list of river gauges as listed at 6:30 a.m. this morning. The ACOE seemingly operate in their own bubble, so it is difficult to predict how long this flow will last or if it will continue to be increased.
Boyer River: Peak Current Reading Forecast
Dunlap 1078.2’ elevation 1011’ Trending down
Logan 25.46’ record 16’ Trending down
A note on the Logan numbers: Visual this morning, it appeared to be higher than is listed. Gauge may be malfunctioning.
MV 1018.02’ 1011’ Trending down
Pisgah 27.31’ 14.20’ Trending down
Decatur 33’ 37.4’ Saturday/Sunday
Blair 29.09 (moderate flood stage) 31.06 Saturday/Sunday
Omaha 31.61’ 33.9 Saturday/Sunday
There is still a lot of water out there and the responders have been working tirelessly for a number of days now.
Again, DO NOT drive around barricades or through water over the road, and please be patient.
