Water Supply & Quality
Harding County, SD

Start Date: 6/5/2017 - End Date: 6/7/2017
The South Dakota Dept. of Environmental & Natural Resources issued a shutoff order for a single irrigator up on the Little Missouri River in Harding County. It was a matter of the flows measured at the Camp Crook gauge dropping below the 20 cfs bypass qualification limit the irrigator’s water right contained. Suspect we will be issuing more from other rivers or creeks if we don’t see some rain, but at this time I don’t see anything as being imminent. From Harding County, South Dakota, on June 6, 2017
