Water officials look to flush Missouri River silt
(2007-06-15)
(NET Radio) - The movement of sediment is a normal characteristic of a healthy river system. But over the years as the Missouri has been dammed and developed, silt has built up in the system's reservoirs. Some of the biggest problems are at Lewis and Clark Lake near the border between northeastern Nebraska and southeastern South Dakota. Sediment has filled in nearly a quarter of the lake's capacity, creating a delta that has narrowed the river's channels. © Copyright 2021, NET Radio
