Fort Pierre Official Testifying Flood Hearing

Fort Pierre Official Testifying Flood Hearing
FORT PIERRE, SD - A Fort Pierre official who warned about possible Missouri River flooding is preparing to testify before a U.S. House committee on the impact this spring's flooding had on small towns.

Public Works director Brad Lawrence says his five-minute testimony before U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee's Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment on Wednesday will include observations on how the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers interacted with small town local governments during the flooding.

Lawrence sent a series of emails to Washington, D.C.-based American Water Works Association in February warning that higher than normal snowpack amounts would lead to flooding.

Lawrence says he thinks he may be the only South Dakota official testifying at the hearing.
