1928 the Corps did not look at how these alterations would change water quality wetlands and the habitat for fish and wildlife in millions of acres of waters and wetlands in the basin Today the officials with the Corps of Engineers still wanhts to limit their jurisdiction and responsibility to navigation and flood control and the limited mandate which Congress gave to the Corps back in 1928 As long as the officials with the U S Army Corps ofEngineers successfully ignore all of the federal laws like the National Environmental Policy Act and all laws which have been passed since 1970 dealint with waters wetlands fish and wildlife forest andother natural resources then the quality of the Mississippi River Basin will continue to dramatically decline 160 Number Of Responses 1 160 Percentage Of Responses 4 160 160 160 This is the greatest river in the world It has so much rich history and culture associated with it but we re ignorant about a lot of it Not enough people know

Total 28 7 Where would you take a visitor who had never seen the river before And why would you choose this location 160 Because of limited access to the river and even limited opportunities to see the river the public is disconnected from it and its needs We have engineered the river to accommodate navigation and agriculture but we need to invest more in natural resources and nature tourism to

Number Of Responses 1 160 Percentage Of Responses 3 160 160 160 If the officials in the U S Army Corps of Engineers continjue to be selective about which laws they will follow and which they will ignore the future of the natural resources in the Mississippi River Basin will continue to be dramatically and adversley impacted All of the federal agencies which have some interest impacts resources and responsibilities for natural resources like the Department of the Interior the Department of Energy the Department of transportation the Environmental Protection Agency the Coast Gard etc need to be involved in this study All similar state agencies in the states in the Mississippi River basin need to be involved in this study All of the non governmental organizations and interested public in the basin need to be involved in this study All of the challenges in the river basin like the pesticide endrin contamination from the Velsicol Chemical plant in Memphis Tennessee which caused the massive fish snake and bird kills in the Mississippi and Atchafalaya Rivers and the Gulf of Mexico in the 1950 s 1960 s and 1970 s must be included in any discussion about the future of the Mississippi River Basin In the rivers which flow into the Mississippi River in and around Memphis today there are still serious contamination of fish and wildlife from the pesticide endrin If the officials with the Corps of Engineers and the other government and non government groups in this study are not aware of these and thousands of other challenges in the Mississippi River Basin then they

  • Beyond the Power Struggle: The Science and Values of Sustainable Hydropower - News & Community
    underpinning this work is that good science can identify more balanced outcomes for river basins and Conservancy scientists are working to develop tools that can find those outcomes We re now testing those tools and promoting the potential for more sustainable hydropower development in river basins in Mexico Colombia Brazil and Gabon While the Penobscot was something of a remodel elsewhere in the world where hydropower is just starting to expand we want to talk directly to the architects and builders the first time around If the only word in your vocabulary is no you probably won t get invited to take part in many conversations Through hydropower by design we have a much broader vocabulary and can get involved in conversations about how and where hydropower will be developed Always saying no does have one clear advantage it s consistent and easy to explain Being part of a conversation can be complicated and invites suspicion This is where our values and our science are key Engaging directly in the process of hydropower development means being willing to walk in a world shrouded in gray To avoid looking gray ourselves we must shine a bright light on our values We engage in hydropower the way we do because we believe those strategies have the best chance of keeping the most rivers wetlands floodplain forests and estuaries healthy Finding strategies that work are urgently needed these ecosystems are among the most important for people with values that range from the simple we love rivers to swim and play to critical to livelihoods and life tens of millions of people in Africa and Asia depend on rivers for their daily calories But clear statements of values can only get you so far particularly when combined with complicated collaborations This is where science comes in Values are expressed in words but our science can demonstrate that our values are more than just words Using science we can test our theories refine our strategies and quantitatively describe the outcomes we seek Science can provide credible evidence to support our assertion that being part of the messy conversation can be an effective path to protecting rivers Our approaches require collaboration and these approaches fit our DNA Our particular DNA deal driven science based suits us to a certain niche I don t claim that it s the only way to conserve rivers but we believe that in many places it s the most effective way And importantly it s the way that we re good at It s our niche so let s make the most of it And there are still battles worth fighting There s a new list of place names joining the historical roll call Tiger Leaping Gorge Sesan and Sambor Fighting dams It s in environmentalists DNA But what s the essential trait of DNA It can evolve The views and opinions of the bloggers on this web site are their own they do not necessarily represent the views of The
