Corps Closes Sixth Breach on Mo River Levee System L-550

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District closed a sixth breach along Missouri River Levee System L-550, located near Missouri River Mile 524 southwest of Rock Port, Missouri, on Jan. 14. This is the sixth breach that has been closed under the current contract with Weston Solutions, Inc. of West Chester, Pennsylvania, leaving one remaining breach on the L-550 Levee System to be repaired. It is anticipated that this final breach will also be closed by the beginning of April. The closure of these breaches will provide an interim level of flood risk management benefits to the area behind the levee system until full repairs can be made to the system, which are scheduled to be completed this year.
