Max Armstrong looks at a guiding document for the Army Corps of Engineers and its role in the 2019 floods

Max Armstrong looks at the Master Water Control Manual, which guides the Army Corps of Engineers in managing the Missouri River. A court ruling in 2018 found that the Corps focused on endangered species versus protecting property and lives, which may be exacerbating the 2019 floods. The farmer who filed the original lawsuit says that if flood prevention was the focus, versus the Master Water Control Manual, the problem wouldn’t be as bad.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
