More Water Released

Yesterday, I observed that the river was receding. That would be good news for those of us that like to ride the Iowa Riverfront Trail in Council Bluffs.

Well, today on the news I heard that the Corp of Engineers is releasing more water from the Gavins Point Dam (near Yankton, SD). So, we can expect river levels to rise again.

There's a surplus of water up stream, in addition to the excess of water in the Omaha area. Don't expect the river to be down (and the trail rideable) for some time.
