Corps: States Can Help Improve Flood Forecasting

Corps: States Can Help Improve Flood Forecasting
BISMARCK, ND -

Missouri River governors are questioning a top officer for the Army Corps of Engineers about the agency's plans for stopping future floods.

North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple is hosting Wednesday's meeting in Bismarck. The governors of Montana and South Dakota and the lieutenant governors of Nebraska and Iowa are taking part.

Brig. Gen. John McMahon is commander of the region that oversees the Missouri River's management. He says states can help improve flood forecasting by providing information on spring snow and water runoff.

McMahon says the corps should have repairs to river dams and levees finished by year's end. But McMahon says additional work may be needed.

States along the Missouri River sustained extensive flood damage last year. This summer's flood forecast is favorable because of a mild winter.
