Corps ups flow at dam northwest of Minot

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it has increased the outflow from the Lake Darling Dam northwest of Minot.

MINOT, N.D. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it has increased the outflow from the Lake Darling Dam northwest of Minot.

The corps says the Lake Darling flow was upped to 2,300 feet per second Wednesday. The corps plans to hold the releases at this level until the reservoir elevation drops to 1,593 feet. This is expected to be reached around April 12. Once the elevation is reached, the corps will reduce the outflows to allow the snowpack moisture to run through the system.

The corps assumed control of Lake Darling Dam from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on March 19.
