New brochure on Upper Mississippi River water level management available
LA CROSSE, Wis. -- A new brochure that explains how wildlife officials are using water level management as a tool to restore habitat on the Upper Mississippi River is now available to the public.
Along with a short explanation of the water level management process, the brochure includes a brief summary of the results of the Pool 8 demonstration draw downs and the future direction of water level management on the river.
The brochure is available at many state and federal offices along the river including U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Wisconsin and Minnesota Department of Natural Resources offices. It will also be available at public meetings involving river issues. The Water Level Management on the Upper Mississippi River brochure http://www.mvp.usace.army.mil/docs/brochure.pdf is also available on Army Corps’ Mississippi Valley Division Web site (Adobe® Acrobat® Reader® is needed to view and print the portable document format (PDF) file. To download Adobe Acrobat for free, please see the DNR Download Page.)
The brochure was produced by the Water Level Management Task Force of the River Resource Forum, which is a technical advisory body to the St. Paul District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. As part of this cooperative effort, The Nature Conservancy of Minnesota and Wisconsin paid for the printing of the brochure.
