The lake has risen over 14 feet since March 9 and continues to rise. Inflow into the lake peaked today at approximately 48,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) and inflow is forecast to start slowly declining.

  • Corps urges all to monitor Missouri River conditions - threat to levees significant

    The Kansas City District wants all stakeholders - public, levee districts, local and state authorities - to pay close attention to conditions on the Missouri River. Water levels are high now in many locations and are forecasted to get higher. High concern of overtopping to non-federal levees in the northern reaches of our district – from Rulo, Neb. to Kansas City, Mo. over the next several days is significant due to heavy runoff from rain and melting ice. We will be closely monitoring federal levees, but none are predicted to overtop at this time. It takes three to four days for water from Yankton, S.D. to reach our portion of the Missouri River.
