New Agreement Reached to Help Avoid Future Major Flooding Along Missouri River

(MISSOURINET) –  A new agreement has been reached for the Army Corps of Engineers to consider changes to levees along the Missouri River in an effort to avoid the major floods of the past few years. After the 2019 flood, state officials in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa worked together to suggest changes to reduce the risk of another major flood. Corps of Engineers Kansas City District Commander, Colonel Travis Rayfield, says federal law restricts what the Corps of Engineers can do when rebuilding levees broken by floodwaters. . .

The study in northwest Missouri’s Holt County will focus on river miles 515 to 450 across the Missouri River from Holt County. The new agreement is a cost-share between the Corps of Engineers, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, and Holt County FCSA officials.
