water at Ft Peck

Since I have never seen water in the spillway, let alone at the "top of the spillgates" as reported in the Gazette, if anyone goes to the lake and can take some pictures, I would greatly appreciate it. I want to see how high the water is, and can't find pics anywhere.

Thanks!

Here is a link to all of the Montana web cams. Ft. Peck Dam is one of them. Maybe this will help a little.

Cory, I was at Fort Peck on Thursday, about 4 hours after they opened the spillway gates. I took some pictures with my cell phone of the upstream side of the South spillway gate, with the water about 1' below the top, and of the water flowing down the spillway itself. If I can figure out how to upload those photos to my computer (I've not done that before) I will be glad to forward them to you. Please send me your e-mail address to [email protected]

Tom, you should be able to send yourself the photos by sending a picture message to any e-mail address.

The USACOE opened the gates another foot today. they are releasing 35,000 cu.ft./second through the spillway. No matter how you feel about the Corps management plan this is quite a sight.
