Drought conditions lead to lower than normal runoff of the Missouri River

OMAHA, N.E.(WNAX)- The ongoing dry and warm conditions across the northern plains are reflected in the runoff predictions into the Missouri River.

Kevin Grode with the Corps of Engineers in Omaha says they have seen lower than normal runoff since last year.

Grode says their overall runoff prediction will end up well below normal.

Grode says they don’t expect much change all year.

The Corps is sending letters to water users along the river, warning them of possible problems with low water access.
