    Garrison Dam spillway gates May 25, 2011

     

    The water of Lake Sakakawea appeared to be about three feet from going over the spillway gates at the Garrison Dam the evening of May 25, 2011.  I understand the Corps has never had to release water through the spillway. They are increasing releases through the dam, on the way to 105,000 cfs by June 9. I hear in this scenario, many peoples' homes in Bismarck will be under 3+ feet of water. Water levels are expected to remain high at least through July & into August.
