Water Management Monthly News Release
Jan 9, 2008

OMAHA – Cold temperatures formed an ice bridge on the Missouri River above Sioux City, Iowa, on Dec.15, dropping river stages by 5 feet.  Releases from the main stem system of reservoirs were increased as municipal and utility managers closely monitored their water intakes.

 With a forecast for extremely cold temperatures, releases were increased Dec. 9 from 12,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) to 14,000 cfs in anticipation of river ice formation and associated downstream stage reductions.  By Dec. 15 an ice bridge had formed above Sioux City and Gavins Point releases were further increased to 16,000 cfs to keep downstream intakes operable. 

 Despite the increased releases, the ice bridge caused stages to drop about 4 feet at Omaha and Nebraska City.  Releases were increased from several Army Corps of Engineers’ dams in the Kansas River basin to help maintain stages at and below Kansas City.  Gavins Point releases were gradually reduced, beginning on Dec. 22, as temperatures moderated and downstream Missouri River flows returned to more normal levels.
