Tests are being conducted on the Gavins Point Dam near Yankton, SD


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers conducted tests on Gavins Point Dam near Yankton, South Dakota.

This was part of the ongoing rehabilitation and repair after flooding along the Missouri River in 2011.

Army Corps officials hoped Tuesday's test would help them gain more information on the condition of the concrete slabs at the bottom of the spillway.

Water levels were also increased for the tests.
