Senator Christopher Bond is warning Missouri governmental and business leaders to keep up their fight to keep the water flowing into the Missouri River. Bond says the Army Corps of Engineers is closing in on completion ofthe Missouri River Master Manual, which guides operation of the six upstream dams that hold or release water into the Missouri. Bond concedes the manual will change, yet he expresses confidence the changes won’t be those advocated by the Fish and Wildlife Service, which wants drastic changes to protect endangered species. Bond wants to protect navigation on the river and keep the water levels high enough to ensure water supplies and electricgeneration capabilities. The fight over the Missouri River Master Manual has been going on for 12 years. It could be resolved next year.
