Mississippi River Commission to Hold Public Meeting in Dubuque (USA)

The Corps of Engineers is hosting a public meeting aboard the Motor Vessel (MV) Mississippi on Aug. 13 at 1 p.m. at the River’s Edge Plaza in Dubuque, Iowa.

The public meeting is held as part of the Mississippi River Commission’s Low Water Inspection trip that runs Aug. 12-16. The MRC conducts the annual trip to inspect Corps of Engineers projects along the Upper Mississippi River.

Each spring and late summer, the Commission conducts a series of public meetings aboard the MV Mississippi to maintain a dialogue and to exchange viewpoints and ideas with stakeholders and the public. Traditionally, during the Low Water Inspection trip, the Commission travels the length of the Mississippi River stretching from St. Paul, Minn., to New Orleans.

The Presidentially-appointed Mississippi River Commission, established by Congress in 1879, is comprised of three Army officers, an Admiral and three civilians. The Commission’s duties include making recommendations on policy and work programs, studying and reporting on whether modifications or additions are needed for flood control and navigation projects, providing recommendations on any matters authorized by law, and making semi-annual inspection trips.
