Rising Mississippi affects ADM Quincy operations

High waters along the Mississippi River forced a reassignment for workers at the ADM plant in Quincy, Ill.

Workers there met with managers today and were told of the temporary reassignment.

Company spokeswoman Jackie Anderson said the water is currently too high for workers to load products on to barges.

â??We're able to use trucks to handle all our transportation needs at Quincy,â?? she said. â??Our workers who typically handle barge activities at Quincy will have other assignments until our barge operations resume."
