Governors sign Missouri River management MOA
January 27, 2020 By Julie Harker Filed Under: News
The governors of Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska signed an agreement over the weekend saying the states will enhance and promote cooperation to improve flood recovery and future flood control in the Lower Missouri River Basin.
In the memorandum of understanding, the four governors say
they will direct their respective agencies to, among other things, “identify
areas of joint study to improve flood recovery and flood control to mitigate
impacts of future weather-related events.” The agreement says, “Many people
rely on the effective and predictable operation of the Missouri River by the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for protection of their lives, homes, livestock,
crops, and future.”
Governors Reynolds, Parson, Kelly and Ricketts says the states are reasserting their leadership in guiding the federal government’s management of the Missouri River.
