Missouri River Management

Missouri Teaming up With Others States for Levee Improvement........

 

Missouri officials are looking to get the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to make some changes to the Missouri River levee system. According to Dru Buntin, Deputy Director of the Department of Natural Resources, Missouri has teamed up with Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa to propose changes to the levee system to avoid the issues that made the 2019 flooding so bad.

 

Buntin says that the states intend to work together and will take a regional approach when assessing the areas where targeted focus and investment in flood management will have the greatest effect.

 

A main point of focus in the Missouri RIver L-536 Levee in Atchison and Holt Counties, which ended up being breached in five locations during the flood of 2019.  THe Atchison County Levee District has suggested moving the levee back to allow more room for floodwaters.  They also suggest using a more modern levee design........

Mississippi River At Wood River, Illinois

The Wood River Levee Has Earned 100 Year Accreditation........

 

Over the past 12 years, work on Mississippi River levees around the St. Louis metro region has going on while officials aimed to avoid losing their certification.

 

The thinking was that the levees became deficient, so the federal government would threaten to decertify.  Now, following a series of upgrades, the Wood River Levee system has earned accreditation for a 100 year flood level.

 

Madison County Board Chairman Kurt Prenzler says that with the accreditation, the flood insurance will not be skyrocketing, which will ease the minds of local residents........

Missouri River Near Maryland, Heights, Missouri

MSD Filed Suit Against Levee District To See How Ratepayer Dollars Were Spent........

 

The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District recently filed suit against the controversial Howard Bend Levee District seeking to clear up how the ;levee district has been spending millions of taxpayer dollars over the years.

 

This lawsuit was filed on March 25 in the St. Louis County Circuit Court and is another financial and legal issue for the beleaguered levee district, which is already fighting a lawsuit from it's largest taxpayer, the Hollywood Casino.  The City of Maryland Heights is also contesting taxes on property it owns within the district.

 

MSD is alleging that the levee district will not make the methodology for calculating levee taxes available, nor have they keep proper financial records over the years........

Mississippi River At Keokuk, Iowa

Temporary Carp Deterrent System Installed At Lock No.19........

 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Geological Survey and partners have installed a temporary experimental underwater Acoustic Deterrent System at Mississippi River Lock No.19 at Keokuk, Iowa. 

 

This system has been installed as part of a study of how the invasive Asian carp respond to sound and signals.  Marybeth Brey, a USGS research fish biologist and project leader says that if the system is successful in deterring Asian carp, it could have significant implications for invasive species management.

 

Brey adds that the new deterrent system is designed to be more selective and not affect the native species, creating another tool for resource managers to use in the fight against Asian carp........

Hi Bill!
We have the foundation built!!! Unfortunately, since lumber prices are so high right now we are putting a hold on the build. Hoping all of this ends soon so we can get back to it.

Amanda

Kinder's Restaurant

Foundation work started

"The plan is to keep it in the same location, maybe a little closer to the river and up about 7 ft higher. The building will be just a little smaller with a bigger deck."
