    Default Kansas Corp of Engineers Dam's

    With all this rain and knowing that many of the dams in Kansas are reaching their capacities....gotta be a stress on them. Some will need to release water. Looks like we are in for some serious flooding.

    John Redmond Dam last week....

    Already spent most of yesterday cleaning the water out of my basement. If these were normal rains there would be no issue. Hope for some relief soon

    I have always thought Redmond's spillway was huge compared to similar size reservoirs.

    Typical mismanagement by the Corp. Hold water even when there where opportunities to release some.

    Bureaucratic incompetence aside I prefer the bureaucrats to mother nature. Hopefully climate science will make management better but I'm not holding my breath.

    Horrible to behold such failures in our ability to prevent such things.

    I am assuming you must hold an engineering degree and know a better way to limit the flooding downstream? Please explain how the Corps of Engineers is mismanaging the lakes designed entirely for flood control.

    Sure. I hold a common sense degree and am saying there have been opportunities to release some water from Kansas reservoirs in the past several weeks and they have not been taken. I’ve lived by the Kansas river for 55 years.
