OMAHA | The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will spray selected Missouri River sandbars in September to control vegetation.

Approximately 880 acres have been identified for treatment between Pickstown, South Dakota, and Ponca, Nebraska. The spraying is done to keep the sandbars free of vegetation and usable for nesting by the interior least tern and piping plover.

Applicators using helicopters and all-terrain vehicles will spray on vegetated portions of the sandbars on days when there is little wind and no rainfall in the immediate forecast.
