US Senators and Rep. Prepare for Possible Flooding of Mighty Mo

by

 

US Senators John Thune and Tim Johnson, along with Representative Kristi Noem have teamed up with senators and representatives from North Dakota and Montana to make sure we are prepared in case the Missouri River was to flood this spring.

They have sent a letter to Brigadier General John Kem of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, asking the Corps to provide them with their flood prevention plan, and information on what the Corps has done to update and repair infrastructure from the 2011 Missouri River flooding.

They write “We are hopeful that lessons learned in 2011 will inform prudent decision-making on the part of the Corps.  We believe that a greater level of engagement and information sharing by the Corps with states, tribes, local officials, and other federal agencies is critical to informing river management decisions, particularly under extreme conditions.”
