The Missouri River Master Water Control Manual (Master Manual) presents the basic water control plan and objectives for the integrated operation of the six mainstem reservoirs in conjunction with downstream projects. The Master Manual was first published in December 1960, with minor revisions in 1973, 1975, and 1979. The Missouri River basin experienced a drought in 1987-1992 that affected project uses and environmental resources. In response to numerous inquiries, the Corps initiated a review of the current Master Manual in November 1989.
