YANKTON, South Dakota — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to reduce the amount of water releases from Fort Randall and Gavins Point dams on the Missouri River.

The changes in the popular recreational area will begin Thursday. The Corps is reminding duck hunters to check their decoys and river users to plan for lower levels.

Releases will be reduced by approximately 3,000 cubic feet per second in a stair-step manner during four days.

The new levels will be in effect until winter releases are implemented in December. The navigation season at the mouth of the Missouri River ends on Dec. 10.
