Ice jams raise flooding concern while agencies move to close camp

 

February 22, 2017



The National Weather Service continues to predict a good chance for minor flooding on the Cannonball River where the Dakota Access Pipeline opposition camps are situated. The possibility of ice jam-caused high water is a rising concern this week as the river ice starts to move.

NWS hydrologist Allen Schlag said nearly 80 percent of the snow pack is melted in the river’s drainage and a rise in the river is still expected. He said models have been underestimating how much of the snow melt has been seeping into the soil.
