Good Question: Is Gavins Point Dam Leaking?
Our buddy Joe Reklaitis from Concord, NE asks, "Is there a crack or leak in Gavins Point Dam?" and shot this video in Yankton the other day.
You can see water coming out a corner of Floodgate 9.
We called up the Army Corps of Engineers to find out what's going on.
They told us that yes, that is a leak, but it's nothing to worry about: it's a rubber seal that gets worn down and has to get replaced every few years, so the dam itself hasn't sprung a leak.
The Corps performed a flow test on Tuesday but that's also routine.
So, there's a little water at Gavins Point, but it's nothing to worry about.
