Abstract : The principal purpose of this study is to determine if there is a Federal interest in making structural and/or nonstructural improvements to the Upper Mississippi River Navigation System. The study scope includes economic, environmental, recreational, engineering, and operational issues. Both site- specific and system-wide navigation issues were examined in a preliminary manner in order to evaluate the impact of the alternatives. Each issue and potential solution was analyzed for its impact on system navigation, recreation, the riverine environment, and economic consideration.
