NE Ridger - 7/29/2020 18:50 The link says that 3G releases were increased to 37,000 cubic meters per second, which is about 1.3 million CFS. 13 times more water than the Missouri at its peak last year. Dat's a lotta water.
That's 9.72 million gallons of water per second.
In irrigation terms, that's putting 1 inch of water on 358 acres every second. That's a lot of water indeed.
I'd love to take about 5-6 seconds worth of water evenly spread out on every acre we farm right now. Be nice if it took a little longer than 6 seconds to fall though.
