Drought's done, but water still a concern

DECATUR -- An area business is keeping its eye on Lake Shelbyville. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers might lower the lake's water level because of the drought.

The lake feeds into the Mississippi. Lower levels could mean problems for companies which use the river for shipping.

ADM is one of those. Company leaders say they are "monitoring the situation closely and making arrangements for alternative transportation methods." ADM is also working with the state in case any changes have to be made.
