Current Project Status: Construction

Project Scope:
   The Missouri River Levee Raise: the requested assistance will provide the federal construction funds to the US Army Corps of Engineers so that together with the local match, which is being provided by the local sponsors, this important project may proceed under a construction listing which will assist with additional funding in the future and allow for construction in the future. Unit R 471-460 is on the right bank of the Missouri River and is 13.8 miles long and averages 14.8 feet high. It protects Elwood and Wathena, Kansas and Rosecrans Memorial Airport and Air National Guard Base for the 139th Airlift Group in Missouri, as well as 10800 acres of farmland. Unit L-455 is located on the left bank of the Missouri River, is 15.6 miles long and averages 13 feet high. The Corps completed the reconnaissance study in May of 1999. In that report, structural measures were determined to be feasible for L-455 and for R 460-471, including raising the existing levees and improvement in seepage control.
