JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans a conference call next week to discuss the Missouri River after public meetings had to be cancelled.

Officials are accepting public comments on a draft operating plan for the Missouri River. Monday's conference call will include an update on current conditions in the river basin and plans for regulating reservoirs next year.
