Corps plans hearing on Osage River dams

February 28th, 2011 in News

RHINELAND, Mo. - The Army Corps of Engineers will hold a public hearing next week on the operation of Osage River dams that form Missouri's Truman Reservoir and the Lake of the Ozarks.

U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer says he requested the hearing because of concerns that downstream areas often are inundated with large releases of water from the dams.

The Corps operates the Truman dam. But Bagnell Dam at the Lake of the Ozarks is operated by the utility company Ameren Missouri.

The hearing takes place March 10 at 6:30 p.m. at the Rhineland Volunteer Fire Department.
