The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the Missouri Department of Conservation in partnership with other federal and state agencies studied known problems in the Lower Grand River Watershed in north central Missouri. Problems included channel instability, stream bank erosion, sedimentation, logjams and stream capture. These problems alter water flowing in streams, impair public infrastructure, affect landowners and degrade aquatic and wetland habitats. This study will provide crucial guidance toward evaluating and selecting viable options, as well as in securing authorization and adequate funding for recommended construction projects.
The draft feasibility report identifies the study team’s tentatively selected plan, which includes a suite of measures proposed for construction within the watershed. Additional appendices listed in the table of contents are available upon request via the contact information provided below.
Public comments on the plan will be accepted through Nov. 20, 2019. They can be sent to: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District, Attn: PMP-R Grand River Feasibility Study, 601 E. 12th Street, Kansas City, MO 64106 or via email to GrandRiver@usace.army.mil.
