USACE: Preparations Made for Rising River Levels

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers St. Louis District has responded to flooding on the Mississippi River by activating its Emergency Operations Center in St. Louis and closing locks on the Mississippi River.

With high water forecasted over the next week on the Upper Mississippi River, the Corps activated its EOC in St. Louis. This enables the Corps to provide teams and resources to support local flood fighting efforts. Corps personnel have contacted affected levee districts to coordinate flood fighting activities and ensure supplies such as sandbags, pumps and plastic are available if needed.

Barge traffic on the river was impacted by high water as Lock and Dam 24 in Clarksville, Mo., was closed to navigation on Friday.

Lock closures are essential to protect critical components and facilities from flood waters and be able to restore services as quickly and economically as possible after water levels recede.
