This is a part of a series of posts for attendees and blog visitors interested in the fall 2012 Missouri River Bed Degradation Charette.
Day 1 consisted of stakeholder presentations from WaterOne of Johnson County, KCP&L, Missouri Department of Transportation, Kansas Water Office, Holliday Sand & Gravel and city of Kansas City, Mo. All presenters communicated very clearly their interests in the study and provided real costs already incurred to modify infrastructure and operations to deal with bed degradation.
After lunch, charette participants took a tour of four sites on the Kansas and Missouri rivers to get a first-hand look at infrastructure impacts.
All participants are encouraged to comment or ask questions in the comment section. So far, it is moving pretty quickly and I’ll try to post another update today.
