Print Friendly Version

On October 16 , the Army Corps of Engineers held a public meeting in Jefferson City, Missouri, to brief the public about their operation plans for the mainstem Missouri River system, during the 2008 operating year. 

Under the current water conditions, it is likely that a spring pulse flow will occur during March.  It is less likely that a second pulse flow event will occur in May. 

Corps personnel gave presentations on system operations explaining to the public under what conditions these experimental flows could occur.   

The main concerns raised by the public related to levee damage that had occurred during the spring of 2007 and what these increased flows might mean for Missouri residents. 

Project Leader Tracy Hill, Branch Chief for Missouri River Studies and Fish Biologist Jeff Finley attended the meeting representing the Fish and Wildlife Service. 

Service personnel were in attendance to answers questions raised by the public concerning fisheries work that is ongoing on the river.
