This week's storms across the basin are causing a dramatic rise in the Missouri River.

Saturday, April 20, the river is forecast to be above flood stage.

The River Clean-up by boat has been canceled.

The River Festival will still happen as planned.

Organizers are scouting for land-based sites where people can still clean up. Those who want to help can still show up Saturday morning at 9 a.m. to get trash bags, gloves, a t-shirt and a plan on how/where to help out.

Ideas of spots that could use a clean-up in the Washington area may be emailed to
