LaMoure spillway deemed stable
Published 03/29/2010, The Jamestown Sun
The emergency spillway at Lake LaMoure has been deemed stable by the North Dakota State Water Commission representatives on site, said Sheri Gartner, director of emergency services for LaMoure County. Flows over the emergency spillway have gone down considerably over the last few days, she said. Total flows going out of the lake now exceed the flows coming into the lake, which means the lake level should be dropping steadily over the next few days. The area around the emergency spillway remains closed to the general public for safety and security reasons.Word count: 395
