Lawmakers Seek Missouri River Flood Prep Details

Lawmakers Seek Missouri River Flood Prep Details
BILLINGS, MT -

Federal lawmakers from states along the Upper Missouri River are asking the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to disclose the steps it's taking to prepare for potential spring floods.

Mountain snowpack levels in the Missouri River basin so far this season are comparable to 2011, when flooding devastated hundreds of thousands of acres of mostly farmland across the Midwest.

On Wednesday, members of congress from Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota asked Army Corps Brig. Gen. John Kem what infrastructure repairs and improvements have been made in the years since.

Lawmakers also want to know how the Corps is managing a network of major reservoirs along the Missouri River to limit the flood threat.

April, May and June historically are some of the wettest months in the basin.
