Due to the excessive rain and localized flooding in the St. Louis District's Area of Responsibility, we are continuing to work with the National Weather Service as forecasts are updated and conditions on the river change, and will be ready to provide assistance if needed.

Stay Alert! Heavy localized downpours can quickly result in flash flooding or other rapid rises in water levels. In addition, use extreme care when driving and never drive into water since it may turn out to be deeper or faster-flowing than expected.

River and Reservoir information such as river stage, pool elevations, inflows and discharges are updated regularly at our website: http://bit.ly/stlwaterlevels

Please Note: The St. Louis District is experiencing technical difficulties with our telephones. Please continue to monitor our social media and website, www.mvs.usace.army.mil for updates.

Students at St. Teresa's Catholic School in Belleville, Ill., became "Fish FINatics" when Erin Hilligoss-Volkmann, Natural Resource specialist with the St. Louis District's Rivers Project in West Alton, Mo., visited with them today.

The students learned about native Mississippi River fish and the different behaviors and adaptations that help them survive in their environment. Each student will also submit an original drawing of a fish for a chance to be featured in the 2016 Fish FINatics Field Guide of fish of the Mississippi River.

Today’s program is part of the year long outreach partnership between the St. Louis District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the school. Each program focuses on the practical application of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). #STEM

The St. Louis District celebrated National Library Week today with an open house to highlight the many services that are offered to employees. Employees got in the spirit as well by sharing why they love libraries…

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support.
