Corps' Missouri River Plan Revealed

Corps' Missouri River Plan Revealed
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota officials say the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers must consider changes in how it manages the Missouri River to reduce the chances of a repeat of last year's extensive flooding.

During a public meeting in Pierre on Tuesday, state officials asked the corps to keep in mind that weather patterns tend to run in cycles, with wet conditions lasting more than just a year.

The state also is urging the agency to study changes last year's high water made in the river channel near Pierre and Fort Pierre.

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.
