FORT PECK, Mont. --
Flows through Fort Peck powerhouses will decrease through March 4. These flow reductions may impact ice conditions below the dam on the river and dredge cuts. Recreationists on the ice, both below and above the dam, are urged to use extreme caution.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced on Monday that the powerhouse will decrease flows to 7500 cubic feet per second (cfs) at midnight. Flows will decrease to 6500 cfs at midnight March 3, and 4500 cfs on March 4.
Flows at Fort Peck are determined in coordination with the Missouri River Basin. Current conditions can be found here: https://www.nwd-mr.usace.army.mil/rcc/
