Warsaw, Mo.— The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Harry S.
Truman Dam will begin non-emergency repairs to an earthen slide on the
downstream slope of Sterett Creek Dike.
The slide at
Sterett Creek Dike was discovered in late December 2015 following six inches of
rain. The saturated conditions are believed to have caused the slide. Harry S.
Truman Dam project staff and geotechnical engineers from the Kansas City
District Office monitor the dike routinely and have increased monitoring of the
embankment since the slide occurred. It is anticipated the slide may take two
to three weeks to repair.
For additional information or questions, please contact the Public
Affairs Office at 816-389-3486.
