Update on Levels at Missouri River basin

OMAHA, N.E.(WNAX)- While reservoir and river levels continue to drastically drop in the Colorado River Basin, the same is not expected in the Missouri River basin.

John Remus, Chief of the Missouri River Basin Water Management Office for the Corps of Engineers, says their overall operating plan is quite different.

Remus says a priority is to keep water in the upstream reservoirs.

Remus says while the two basins share some of the same resources, there are big differences.

The Colorado River and its main reservoir at Lake Mead have been at historic lows and continue to fall.
