A water pump rests on the dry side of a levee in Fort Pierre while media personnel survey Missouri River flooding and South Dakota National Guard soldiers and airmen monitor and secure the levee, June 7. The pump is used when the natural accumulation of water caused by drainage becomes excessive. The cities of Fort Pierre and Pierre work in direct cooperation with SDNG's quick reaction force.
