Drought Influencing Missouri River Management Plan

October 31, 2012, 6:40 AM

Drought Influencing Missouri River Management Plan
BISMARCK, ND -

Residents and officials in the Dakotas are urging the Army Corps of Engineers to conserve water in upstream Missouri River reservoirs as drought conditions persist. The call comes just a year after record flooding on the river.

The corps is holding six meetings in five states over four days on its annual operating plan for the river for the upcoming year. Meetings were held Tuesday in the North Dakota capital of Bismarck and the South Dakota capital of Pierre.

The corps says September runoff in the Missouri River system was a record low. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says the dry conditions could carry into the spring.

The corps will conduct checks in March and July to determine what level of water to release to downstream areas.
