The meeting will include a presentation from the Missouri River Water Management Division regarding the current status of reservoir operations followed by a question and answer session.
“Flood control remains a primary consideration as we move into 2013 despite the growing concerns about the impacts of the drought on the basin’s resources,” said Jody Farhat, chief of the Water Management Division. “In addition, we’re starting this year’s runoff season with the reservoirs drawn down significantly due to drought and as a result, we are implementing measures to conserve water in the mainstem reservoir system including reduced service to navigation this year.”
