"The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reports dry conditions last month resulted in well-below average runoff in the upper Missouri River Basin. The Corps says April runoff was 1.5 million acre-feet, which is 51% of average.
The updated 2022 upper Basin runoff forecast is 17.8 million-acre-feet, 69% of average, which, if realized, would rank as the 23rd lowest calendar year runoff volume.

“Despite recent snow and rainfall events, 84% of the upper Basin continues to experience abnormally dry conditions. Current drought conditions, dry soils, and below-normal mountain snowpack, resulted in the below-average 2022 calendar year runoff forecast,” said John Remus, chief of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’, Missouri River Basin Water Management Division."
