The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its partner, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, are hosting a public outreach meeting on Monday, May 22, 2023, to discuss flood resiliency near Missouri River mile marker 142. The meeting will be held at the Conference Center, Lewis and Clark State Office Building, 1101 Riverside Drive, Jefferson City, MO 65101.

Doors will open at 4:45 p.m. USACE and MDNR professionals will present at 5:00 p.m. Team members will repeat the presentation at 6:15 p.m. An open house with informational stations will be open between the two presentations and again after the second presentation until the meeting adjourns at 7:30 p.m.

The study area includes the current area of the Capital View levee and the authorized, but never constructed, L-142 levee near Jefferson City, Missouri.

USACE and MDNR are seeking public input about the flooding problems in the area and the factors that are important to finding a locally preferred plan to reduce the risk of flood damages and/or improve resiliency in that location. Information will be provided to the public about additional future points-in- time where the study team will ask for public input.

If you have any questions about this outreach meeting, for USACE please contact Julie MacLachlan at or for the MDNR representative, Erin Fanning, please email her at
