The Missouri River, aka the “Big Muddy,” can be seen near Jefferson City, Missouri.

Officials will hold a series of public meeting for the Lower Missouri Flood Risk and Resiliency Study, also known as the system plan, throughout the region in April.

The meetings, which will be held by the Kansas City District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, will provide an overview of the study, a status update, input on reach measures, flow and stage frequency analysis update and an open discussion. This is an opportunity for the public to ask questions and provide input regarding the Lower Missouri Flood Risk and Resiliency Study. 

The purpose of the study is to work with basin states, Tribes, stakeholders, other agencies and the public to create a vision for a more resilient future for the Lower Missouri River with a focus on flood risk management. The system plan will evaluate reach and system specific alternatives and provide recommendations of future spin-offs and proposed implementation approaches.
