Ten years ago, flood waters devastated large portions of Missouri and other places throughout the Midwest. Now, the new Commander for the Army Corps of Engineers’ district managing the Missouri River wants to look at the idea of spring rises. General William Grisoli says the Corps should be considering spring rises as part of the management of the Missouri River. Grisoli says there are areas that already have natural spring rises such as Central Missouri. He says any benefit to endangered species such as sturgeons could be studied there. Grisoli says there’s no scientific evidence to support or refute how much good a spring rise would actually do for those fish. He thinks it could be worth finding out… as long as it still supports other priorities on the Missouri River, such as naviagtion.
