Judge Tells Corps to Keep Going

Bad news from the court system: a federal judge has told the Army Corps of Engineers to keep using the Missouri River as a highway.

The link above is from the Bismarck Tribune, and contains one of the better write-ups I’ve seen of the history of this issue. For more on this, see previous posts here and here.

The bottom line on this is that the Corps sees itself as an agency that builds Big Projects. But times change, and now sometimes those Big Projects hurt more than they help. America’s rivers and wetlands need a 21st-century Army Corps of Engineers.
