Flooding Delays Montana Outdoor Recreation
U.S. Bureau of Land Management recreation areas and boat launches along the Upper Missouri River in Montana have been affected by recent flooding and ice flows which began the week of March 9-15, 2014, causing some closures and expected delayed openings, the Lewistown News-Argus reported.
With significant snow accumulation yet to melt in the Upper Missouri River Drainage Basin more flooding may occur this spring creating potential hazards. Anyone planning activities on or near the Upper Missouri River should get all available information prior to departure.
“We understand everyone is eager to enjoy spring time recreation on their public lands, but until this flooding event subsides and we can inventory road and facility damage, we encourage everyone to be extremely cautious when traveling across or recreating on public lands,” stated Stan Benes, the BLM’s Central Montana District Manager.
