Corps’ Gull Lake reservoir at near record level


ST. PAUL, Minn. – Due to the recent rainfall, Gull Lake rose nearly 1 foot from the normal summer operating level yesterday, May 27.

The site has received 7.71 inches of precipitation since May 19.  Nearly 3 inches of rain was recorded yesterday (Sunday, May 27). The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which operates the reservoir, pulled the stop logs and fully opened all gates to the lake at the dam.

Property owners should take caution to move any boat lifts, docks, etc., to higher ground. In addition, channels between lakes will have swift currents, and boaters should exercise caution when approaching and proceeding through. Corps staff will continue to monitor the situation on the reservoir and in the river, both upstream and downstream.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, serves the American public in the areas of environmental enhancement, navigation, flood damage reduction, water and wetlands regulation, recreation sites and disaster response. It contributes around $175 million to the five-state district economy. The 700 employees work at more than 40 sites in five upper-Midwest states.
