Corps To Release Another Report On 2011 Flooding

April 13, 2012, 5:32 AM

Corps To Release Another Report On 2011 Flooding
OMAHA, NE -

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to release another report examining last year's flooding along the Missouri River.

The Corps will release a report Friday looking at how much free space it would have needed in reservoirs along the river to handle last year's deluge of water.

The report will also look at how other uses of the river, such as navigation and recreation, would have been affected by storing that much floodwater.

A report from outside experts released in December said the corps did the best it could to deal with last year's record
flooding.

Officials have said nearly all of the 16.3 million acre-feet of the planned storage space for floodwater is available in reservoirs along the Missouri River thanks to recent warm, dry weather.
