Army Corps Of Engineers Conducting Sediment Study

Posted: 24 May, 2013

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says a new study indicates that high discharge, short duration reservoir releases out of Fort Randall Dam could help flush fine sediment out of the Missouri River. The corps says it has been concerned about the buildup of silt and sand behind Gavins Point Dam since the dam was constructed during the 1950s.  Corps staff and basin stakeholders will be looking at combinations of flow, timing and infrastructure modifications that could more effectively transport sand downstream. The second phase of the study is expected to be completed by the end of 2013.
