TREASURE ISLAND TO CONTINUE OPERATIONS DURING CURRENT FLOOD SITUATION; NO IMMEDIATE THREAT TO CASINO OR PRAIRIE ISLAND TRIBAL COMMUNITY

 RED WING, Minn., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Treasure Island Casino expects to remain open and conduct normal business during the current flood threats along the Mississippi River between Hastings and Red Wing, Minn.
 "Projections by our building and grounds staff as well as consulting civil engineers who are working with us, indicate there is no threat of serious flooding to the casino grounds or the adjacent Prairie Island Tribal Community," said John Hall, general manager of Treasure Island Casino. "The one area we are watching closely is the entry road between Goodhue County Road 18 and Taylor Lane. We are optimistic that road will remain open and fully operational in the days and weeks ahead."
 Hall said there are contingency plans in place and enough available work force and resources so that should there be a threat of high water over the entrance road, plans could be put in place to both dike the roadway and divert any extra water. Even though the Vermillion River has flooded the short cut between County Road 316 and the casino, access is still open via Minnesota Highway 61 to County Road 18 to the casino.
 "We want to assure our customers, employees and residents of the Tribal Community that the most important thing is their health, safety and welfare and all of our plans are focused around them and their well- being," Hall added.
