Detailed Maps Released Of Yankton-Area Flood Projections

Yankton County Emergency Management has just uploaded new maps to its site,, showing the areas it believes will be flooded as the Gavins Point Dam flows increase to 150,000 cfs.

“This map was distributed door-to-door (today) to residents in Larson’s Landing and Riverside Acres who lie within the flood area,” said public information officer Lee Rettig. “We went door-to-door, handing the map to them and explaining it to them so they understand what our most recent and best estimates are for flooding.”

The maps are quite clear and easy to understand. Unfortunately, they contain bad news for some of the neighborhoods along the river west of Yankton.

Here is the Riverside Acres/Larson’s Landing map.
