UPDATE: Army Corps, State Water Commission clarifies what river levels will do in Bismarck

By  | 

The ND Water Commission and Army Corps of engineers say the Missouri River level at Bismarck will not hit action stage during the upcoming releases. The Corps will increase releases to 46,000 cubic feet per second by June 25, but the river level at Bismarck is only expected to reach about 11.4 feet.

Jesse Kist, an engineer with the State Water Commission, says extra rain could cause a slight increase in that level, but it would only be temporary.
