Corps Of Engineers Explains Missouri River Plan

Corps Of Engineers Explains Missouri River Plan
PIERRE, SD -

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is holding a public meeting in Pierre to explain the agency's plan for operating the Missouri River dams this year.

Record amounts of water from snowmelt and spring rains led to extensive flooding along the river last year in Pierre and Fort Pierre in central South Dakota and in the Dakota Dunes area in southeastern South Dakota.

Corps officials say a more normal mountain snowpack and little snow on the plains have left the system in better shape this year, with a lot of storage space available in the Missouri River reservoirs for handling floodwater. But those officials say conditions could still change very quickly as they did last year.

Tuesday's meeting starts at 10 a.m. in Pierre.
