USA: Harpers Slough Public Meeting Set for June 19
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, has rescheduled the Harpers Slough Habitat and Rehabilitation public meeting to June 19.
This meeting at Kerndt Brothers Savings Bank Community Center, 370 Main Street, Lansing, Iowa, 6-8 p.m., will be informal to allow for an open exchange of information. A short slide show will be presented at 6:30 p.m., to explain the project and describe the construction work in more detail. Representatives from partner agencies involved in the project will also be available.
The project, which is part of the Upper Mississippi River Restoration Program, is located in Pool 9 near Lansing, Iowa. It includes protecting or restoring 98 acres of island habitat and creating more than 20 acres of overwintering habitat for bluegills and other fish species, which would contribute to enhancing the aquatic diversity in this 3,500-acre study area.
