LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Nebraska and 3 other states along the lower Missouri River are joining forces to look for ways to avoid the kind of flooding that caused millions of dollars in damage last year.

Nebraska is pooling money with Iowa, Missouri and Kansas to pay for half of a $400,000 study by the U-S Army Corps of Engineers to measure how much water flows down the Missouri.

State officials hope to present a united front to federal officials to gain more influence over how the river is managed after devastating floods in 2011 and 2019.
