A reversal of fortunes upstream on the Missouri River
October 30, 2009
The Missouri River draws from a lot of tributaries throughout the Upper Midwest, including the James River in South Dakota. The James is at an unusually high late-season flow
condition right now, and the evidence points to a continued high flow situation for some time to come. This could end up contributing to high flows on the Missouri River
, which just a few years ago was well below normal
, to a point of considerable concern for communities like Kansas City
, which rely on the river to provide municipal water.
