Durbin: Corps Decision on Missouri River Understandable

  • Photo
ST. LOUIS (AP) A federal lawmaker from Illinois who pressed the Army Corps of Engineers to release more Missouri River water into the drought-starved Mississippi says he understands why the agency has decided against it.

Sen. Dick Durbin last week joined several other lawmakers from Mississippi River states in asking the corps to scale back the amount of the Missouri water it began withholding last month from the Mississippi.

But a top corps official, Jo-Ellen Darcy, says that won't happen. She says she believes the low Mississippi will remain open to shipping despite concerns otherwise by lawmakers and the barge industry.

Durbin says he appreciates the corps' other rationale that it is bound legislatively to be stewards of the Missouri regardless of the potential fallout on the Mississippi.
