Impacts of the Missouri River Flood of 2011 will be felt for a long time. The flood was far reaching in extent and great in magnitude. Although the peak flows were tempered by the mainstem dams, it was still the highest flow on record since the construction of the dams authorized by the Pick-Sloan Plan. Impacts of these flows in the "free flowing" and channelized sections of the river are extensive.
