A story of fish and interstate conflict
March 28, 2008
The US Army Corps of Engineers has decided to cut back on a pulse of water
that's usually allowed to flow down the Missouri River this spring. The pulse is intended to encourage spawning by an endangered fish, but people in Missouri objected to the pulse, arguing that it would create additional hardship for residents trying to recover from recent flooding
. Because the Missouri is shared by many Midwestern states (including Iowa and Nebraska), what's good for one part of the river basin is sometimes in conflict with what's good for others.
