Oahe and Big Bend Release Numbers drop to 140,000 cfs on Saturday


The Corps of Engineers announced Thursday  that the release levels for Oahe and Big Bend Dams will decrease again tomorrow. 
Jody Farhat, Chief of the Water Management Division with the Corps' Omaha office says releases will be reduced at both facilities from the current 145,000 cubic feet per second amount to 140,000 cfs Saturday.
Farhat says the reservoir level at Oahe is about seven tenths of a foot below the top of the spillway gates and is beginning a slow decline and Big Bend is near its normal operating levels.
