Garrison Dam releases scheduled to drop on July 23rd

Good news -- at least, starting July 23rd.

The US Army Corps of Engineers this afternoon posted its updated dams release schedule, and it shows releases from Garrison Dam scheduled to drop from 60,000 cfs to 57,000 cfs on July 23.

By August 3, that number will be down to 53,000 cfs.

Those decreases should help reduce the water level of the Missouri River.
