The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is increasing water releases at Gavins Point Dam because of heavy rainfall in the past week.

Releases were set to increase to 60,000 cubic feet per second, up from 50,000 cfs.

John Remus, chief of the corps’ Missouri River Basin Water Management Division, said there’s no estimate on when releases will return to normal levels.
