Dakota Dunes residents might go home next month

DAKOTA DUNES (AP) � Officials say people who evacuated from a South Dakota city in May should be able to return to their homes as early as next month.

Many homeowners in Dakota Dunes have returned to assess the damage from Missouri River flooding, but the security checkpoints have remained in place.

Jeff Dooley, manager of the Dakota Dunes Community Improvement District, tells the Argus Leader newspaper that the river will likely have receded enough by late September.

The Army Corps of Engineers plans to begin drawing dawn releases from the dam system this week.
