  • Recipient Name: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District
  • Project Purpose: The Holt County flood problem area is located along the Missouri River from river mile 515-450. This flood prone area was heavily damaged in the 1993, 2011, and 2019 floods, and by numerous smaller floods over the years. It consists of multiple federal and non-federal levee districts protecting hundreds of thousands of acres of farmland, fixed investment, and several communities. Critical infrastructure includes Burlington Northern railroad lines, natural gas pipelines, large ammonia tanks, highways, and farm to market roads. During the 2019 flood event, the levees experienced heavy overtopping and extensive damage. It is estimated that the entire levee experienced crown and side slope erosion on both landside and riverside. Due to the very long duration of the flooding event, the levees experienced severe erosion damage. The levees were also overtopped and severely damaged in 2011, 2010, 2007, and 1993. Serious and widespread flood damage has repeatedly occurred to the agricultural and community resources.
