Flood water damages American Creek Campground Fishing Pier

Spring flooding has taken its toll on Brule county roads and bridges. Missouri River flooding in the Chamberlain area has also damaged the American Creek Campground and Fishing Pier (above left). The river level at the Highway 16 bridge at Chamberlain started going up around March 15 and reached a high of about 1367.75 feet the first week of April. Due to strong winds and the rapid break up of the ice on the river, the fishing pier was severely damaged by ice chunks and tree logs.
