Mississippi River Assessment Report Released

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Memphis District, yesterday released the Final Assessment Report of the Lower Mississippi River Resource Assessment.

This report addresses habitat, recreation and information needs on the Lower Mississippi River.

This assessment combines three previously completed assessments under the Lower Mississippi River Resource Assessment. These were an information needs assessment completed in 2013, a recreation needs assessment completed in 2014, and a habitat assessment completed earlier this year.

This final assessment combines the conclusions contained in the three previous ones and proposes a comprehensive plan to guide management of the Lower Mississippi River and improve habitat and recreation access.

The Water Resources Development Act of 2000 authorized this investigation. The Nature Conservancy – Great Rivers Partnership is the lead study sponsor. Other partners include the Mississippi River Corridor-TN, Lower Mississippi River Conservation Committee, National Audubon Society, and The Nature Conservancy chapters in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
