Missouri is losing wildlife, and some say the proposed changes in the Missouri River Flow will only cause more problems.
Rodger Oakes has more from Jefferson City.
Fish and birds dependent on the Missouri River are in danger according to the Missouri Natural Resources Department.
So, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has planned a new flow pattern to address the problem, without consulting Missouri officials.
Joe Engels, of the Natural Resources Department, says changing the flow will be costly.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers control the changes in the river, and have generally consulted states in the past. Engels hopes they do the same this time.
From Jefferson City, I'm Rodger Oakes.
