Corps takes flood control seriously
To the Editor:
Heavy rain and melting mountain snow have caused flooding along the Missouri River and many of its tributaries in much of Missouri, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas. The pain and financial loss of individual families and businesses is wrenching.
The federal levees along the river are performing well, with 6 feet or more of freeboard common throughout the system. However, many non-federal levees with lower levels of protection are facing risk of overtopping; some have recently overtopped or breached.
