Water Conservation and Management
US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) - Lands along the Missouri River
The Corps developed a substantial Mitigation
Project to acquire the land needed to develop fish and wildlife habitat
from Sioux City, Iowa, to St. Louis, Mo.
Today, the Missouri River hosts
a wide variety of interests and uses, all of which are considered in
the Missouri River Recovery Program (MRRP). They include
social, economic, historical and cultural uses such as agriculture, commerce,
conservation, energy, environmental, natural resources, navigation, recreation,
residential, urban uses and water supply.
