Abstract : Lock and Dam 13 is a component of the inland navigation system of the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). Construction was completed in 1939. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, North Central and Lower Mississippi Valley Divisions; St. Paul, Rock Island, and St. Louis Districts are currently engaged in planning and construction activities on the Upper Mississippi and Illinois Rivers for the purpose of repairing and updating components of the navigation system on these rivers. Various site-specific environmental documents have been, or are being, prepared which discuss localized effects to natural and cultural resources from rehabilitation of Locks and Dams 2 through 22 on the Upper Mississippi River; and Lockport, Brandon Road, Dresden Island, Marseilles, Peoria, and La Grange Locks and Dams on the Illinois River. A Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) was prepared to assess the environmental impacts to the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS) from the major maintenance/ rehabilitation effort. The PEIS covers the work on Lock and Dam 13. The majority of the maintenance/rehabilitation work has consisted of repair and replacement items. It was found this work would not result in system-wide or cumlative impacts to the UMRS.
