Missouri River Reservoirs Ready for Spring Runoff

Feb 12, 2018

The officials who manage the reservoirs along the Missouri River say the system is in good shape to handle this spring's runoff.

John Remus with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said the reservoirs are ready to reduce flood risk in the region, even though runoff is expected to be slightly above average at 104 percent of normal.

 A report released today by the Army Corps of Engineers says that having more free space in reservoirs along the Missouri River would not have eliminated last year’s record floods.
