This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN summarizes actions undertaken during 2011 and 2012 to incorporate US Army Corps of Engineers USACE Regional Sediment Management RSM principles into a wide variety of projects as part of flood recovery and reconstruction on the Missouri River. Significant damage was caused by the 2011 Missouri River flood, and mitigation of sediment impacts and repair of infrastructure were given a high priority in an effort to return the flood protection system to acceptable flood protection levels.
