View MSAC’s 48-minute video, Reservoir Sustainability: The “Impossible” Takes a Little Longer. It features people’s stories at seven locations around the Lewis and Clark Lake Region, with reservoir sedimentation information provided by civil and environmental engineering professor Rollin Hotchkiss.
Reservoir Sustainability: The “Impossible” Takes a Little Longer
The individual videos from “Reservoir Sustainability: The ‘Impossible’ Takes a Little Longer” are linked below. In 2019, people around Lewis and Clark Lake told MSAC how sedimentation was impacting their properties, water districts, recreation and more. We learned how the flooding of 2019 and earlier was taking its toll, as sedimentation contributes to the high waters. Follow the links below to the videos. In the first video, Tim Cowman, describes what is happening on the Missouri River above and below Gavins Point Dam.
