KANSAS CITY, Mo. - As the nation's largest federal provider of water-based recreation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District stresses water safety and urges extra caution while in or around water during the upcoming Independence Day holiday.
Recent localized rainfall across the Heartland have increased water in our reservoirs, tributaries and rivers. Current conditions and outlook continue to improve on the Missouri River and the tributaries that feed into it. Several of our reservoirs continue to hold water increasing lake levels and hazards that may be submerged underwater or floating debris.
