Truman Lake Dam.jpeg

Truman Lake is the largest flood control reservoir in Missouri, with a storage capacity of more than 5 million acre-feet - an acre-foot equals 325,000 gallons. At normal pool, the Lake has a surface area of about 55,600 acres – this surface area can grow to over 200,000 acres at the top of the flood control pool. During periods of flooding, Truman Lake, operating in conjunction with other reservoirs, helps protect the lower Osage, Missouri and Mississippi River floodplains.
