Advisory Messages;

Lock your doors to prevent theft. An increase over the last thirty days has been noted in thefts from autos along 350 Hwy and in residential areas north of 63rd Street. Two-thirds of the cars targeted in the last month were unlocked so to help prevent being a victim: always take your belongings inside and lock your doors, no matter whether you are parked at home, at work, or out shopping. If you spot any suspicious activity, please call Raytown Police Dispatch at 816-737-6020. For more information, visit our blog at: www.raytownpolice.blogspot.com

Westridge will be closed from 75th street to Frost Rd beginning on June 6th. It will be closed for approximately 60 days. For full details, go to https://local.nixle.com/alert/4697015/?sub_id=553502

Public Works

With the significant snow pack in the upper plains states, accompanied by the heavy spring rains, has led to record reservoir levels on the upper Missouri River system. The Army Corps of Engineers has implemented a plan to release record amounts of water from the reservoirs in the Dakota’s to ensure safety and stability of the river dam network. The Missouri River will experience record amounts of flow that have not occurred since the dam network was constructed after the floods of the early 1950’s.

The lowest dam in the network is the Gavin’s Point Dam located on the border of Nebraska and South Dakota and is located at Missouri River mile marker 810. The previous record release from the Gavin’s Point reservoir was 70,000 Cubic Feet per Second (CFS), in 1997; the actual release on Wednesday was 80,000 CFS. The maximum release rate is expected to reach 150,000 CFS by the middle of June. As a frame of reference the normal flow of the Missouri River at Atchison, Kansas almost 400 miles downstream is usually near 100,000 CFS.

The increased river flow will rival the flooding of 1993 with many agricultural levies projected to be overtopped. The flooding is expected to last at least a month and possibly more depending upon weather. The levies that protect most of the Kansas City area, the Kansas City drinking water plant and the Little Blue Valley Sewer Treatment Plant are not projected to be overtopped therefore there is no immediate impact to Raytown, but travel and work could be interrupted for some.
