The South Dakota Republican says the group has sent a letter to
the leadership of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee requesting a hearing. The letter was signed by senators from South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Iowa.

The corps has been criticized for its management of Missouri
River reservoirs in the Upper Midwest that have been swollen by
heavy spring snowmelt and rains. Some dam releases have been at
record levels. The corps has said the reservoirs were in good shape
to handle spring runoff until record rains fell upstream in May.
