The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will continue imposing water conservation measures on the Missouri River because of drought conditions.

They say only a minimal amount of water will be released into the lower Missouri River this spring to allow for barge traffic. No additional water will be released to improve water levels in areas with no barge traffic.

The Corps released an average of 18,600 cubic feet per second from Gavins Point dam during March.
