Corps Completes Major Breach Closure on Levee L550 Near Watson, Missouri on August 24

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District completed a breach closure on levee L550 near Watson, Missouri Saturday, August 24.

This initial closure of breach L-550-A-I near river mile 542.8 stops the inflows of water, thereby allowing for the start of follow-on construction activities aimed at increasing the level of flood risk management to approximately the 4% Annual Chance Exceedance (25-yr) level for this section of the L-550 Levee System until the system can be fully rehabilitated.
