WATERS IN WASHINGTON

WITH THE MISSOURI Highway Commission meeting Wednesday being held at the Farris Theatre in Richmond, a commissioner and a Ray Countian, Tom Waters, would have been present, normally. Instead, because he also chairs the Missouri Levee and Drainage District, he appears in Washington to speak before the House Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment about river management issues related to flooding in Missouri. Highway commissioners pause their meeting and listen, via a satellite feed, to Waters address the committee.

RICHMOND– Tom Waters testified Wednesday that river managers are all wet in their approach to flood control.

As a Missouri Highway commissioner and a Ray Countian, Waters would have been present, normally, at the commission meeting Wednesday at the Farris Theatre in Richmond. But because he also chairs the Missouri Levee and Drainage District, he appeared instead in Washington to speak before the House Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment.
