Flood recovery, appropriate prioritization of flood control in river management and water allocation are the top items on the agenda for the State Interagency Missouri River Authority’s Nov. 14 meeting in Council Bluffs.

The group will get an update on the continuing dry conditions, and in a related matter, will discuss two U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ reports. One report provides a five-year plan for managing surplus water in the Missouri River system of reservoirs. The other is a report on the corps’ start-up efforts to change the permanent allocation of Missouri River water for municipal and industrial use.

The Missouri River Authority is an interagency, interstate group that makes recommendations on policies affecting the Missouri River.

The group will meet from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Iowa School for the Deaf, Lied Multipurpose Complex, 3501 Harry Langdon Boulevard, Council Bluffs. The meeting is open to the public.
