Missouri River Flood and Drought: Experts Agree the Army Corps of Engineers Took the Appropriate Action, Given the Circumstances, but Should Examine New Forecasting Techniques
Anne Marie Fennell (au)
The Missouri River stretches from western Montana to St. Louis, Missouri. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) manages six dams and reservoirs on the river to provide flood control and for other purposes, such as recreation and navigation. The Corps bases reservoir release decisions on the guidance in the Master Manual. In the 2011 flood, the Corps managed the highest runoff volume since 1898, resulting in record reservoir releases. Subsequently, drought occurred in the basin in 2012 and 2013. This report reviewed the Corps' release decisions and communication during the flood and drought. It examines (1) experts' views on the Corps' release decisions; (2) experts' recommendations to improve the Corps' release decisions; and (3) stakeholders' views on the Corps' communication, as well as any suggested improvements. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
