The Missouri Sedimentation Action Coalition is a 501(c)3 organization. It was formally incorporated on June 8, 2001. City officials in Pierre, South Dakota took the lead in forming MSAC.

On July 3, 2001, the Pierre Capital Journal reported then Mayor Gary Drewes’ explanation:

“Locally, one of the reasons we’re doing this is we see the buyouts (in southeast Pierre and Fort Pierre) as being a temporary fix. We need to get sedimentation removed to see normal power generation, to see normal flood control, to see normal domestic water use and to continue recreation that was created with the development of the dams.”

MSAC maintains two offices, its primary office in Springfield, South Dakota and an office at the Corps of Discovery Welcome Center located 2 miles south of Yankton, South Dakota on US Highway 81.
