KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded an $888,000 contract to repair a northwestern Missouri levee damaged during last year’s flooding.

The Union Township Levee along the Missouri River in Holt County had four breaches and crown erosion. The Corps says Ideker Inc., of St. Joseph, has won the contract to repair the levee.

Northwestern Missouri suffered extensive spring and summer flooding along the river after releases from upstream reservoirs. To date, the Corps’ Kansas City office has awarded six contracts to repair seven levees along the Missouri.
