Restriction in place on Lewis and Clark Lake

Boaters on Lewis and Clark Lake are being restricted of coming within 1,000 feet of the Gavins Point powerplant intake and spillway.  The restriction is in place as a safety measure due to record outflows from Lewis and Clark Lake into the Missouri River.

The outflows, expected to reach 150,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) by June 14, are creating strong currents in the southeast corner of Lewis and Clark Lake in the vicinity of the powerplant intake and spillway. Boaters on the lake will be required to keep a 1,000 foot distance from these structures throughout this flood event.
