The League submitted comments on the Corps of Engineers’ draft 2019 Annual Operating Plan for the Missouri River reservoir system. The draft plan outlines various management scenarios for next year’s operation of the reservoir system, depending on the amount of runoff received in the basin.
In our comments, we asked the Corps to consider impacts on fish and wildlife and outdoor recreation in its management decisions for next year. The Corps will review comments on the draft Operating Plan and issue the Final Annual Operating Plan in late December. You can read the draft plan on the Corps website.
