The Leland Olds Station was shut down by yesterday afternoon due to falling water levels on the Missouri River.
The coal-based plant uses river water for cooling and to produce steam.
The Garrison Dam was shut down on Tuesday to help relieve flooding conditions in Bismarck downstream from the dam, which caused the river levels to fall.
As of this afternoon, both units at Leland Olds were still shut down. The river level would have to rise at least two feet before the units could be re-started.
In the photo above, the water should be about half-way between the top of the concrete and the opening.
