Lake Sakakawea
Development near the shoreline of Lake Sakakawea and along the Missouri and Little Muddy rivers has increased over recent years. The impacts of development may include, placing occupants of habitable structures at risk of flooding as the easement is for the purpose of accommodating interior drainage to the river; damaging or compromising the levee system which reduces flooding risks for the area; and impeding the flow of runoff from snowmelt or rainfall into the Missouri River system. Landowners are encouraged to contact the Omaha District to determine if there is a flowage easement that applies to their land.
