Hi Bill,

Yesteryear's Picture on this Day in  2008....... was sent in by BajaKelly

 

Hello Bill,

  Just thumbing through some pictures this morning and came across this one taken @ "Condo Beach" behind Two Branch Island late last summer. It really brightened my day with how the river is treating us this year. That would be my 16 year old daughter, Abigail, in the back of the boat obviously wishing she was at the mall instead. 

 

Thanks for the site.
Kelly Nesslage (bajakelly)

Missouri Department Of Conservation

MDC Will Be Studying 84 Pound Carp........

 

Recently, the Missouri Department of Conservation caught an invasive carp while conducting paddlefish research on the Mississippi River.  The carp tipped the scales at 84 pounds.

 

The MDC decided to keep the huge fish so that they may examine it's age, reproductive health, and diet.

 

This huge specimen demonstrates why the fish native to the Mississippi River are having such issues competing against these large and abundant invasive fishes........

Mississippi River At Burlington, Iowa

Thousands Of Gallons Of Sewage Released Into The River........

 

As a new sanitary sewer system in Burlington is being connected, hundreds of thousands of gallons of untreated wastewater will be released into the Mississippi River.

 

This project involves separating the previously combined sanitary and storm sewers in Burlington.  While the connections of the new system are being made, approximately 700 gallons of untreated wastewater will be released into the Mississippi River each minute.

 

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources reports that the discharges began shortly before 11 am on Monday May 2, and stopped around 4:30 pm.  Around 241,000 gallons of sewage was discharged Monday.  The discharges will resume Wednesday........

River Level Charts

 

We are having some problems with the software for our River level charts.  The data shown is good, the charts are just not being updated every 20 minutes.   It's a manual effort and we are trying to update them every hour.

 

The problem should be fixed soon.

Mississippi River At Hartford, Illinois

Vintage Base Ball Coming To Lewis & Clark Site........

 

On Saturday, May 7, the Lewis and Clark State Historic Site will be hosting a vintage "base ball" game, as it was played 150 years ago.  Visitors are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs to the free event.

 

The game will be played by the rules from the 1860's.  At that time, the base ball was pitched underhand, and the batter was called a striker.  Balls caught on the first bounce, as well as those on the fly are outs.  The pitcher is only 45 feet from the batter, unlike the modern 60 feet, six inches.

 

The Lewis and Clark State Historic Site is where the Corps of Discovery spent the winter, prior to launching their historic journey up the Missouri River, en route to the Pacific Ocean.  The site is Site Number One on the National Lewis and Clark Heritage Trail, and it features an Interpretive Center that discusses Illinois' role in the expedition........

Mississippi River Near Alma, Wisconsin

Corps' St. Paul District Celebrates 150th Anniversary........

 

Last Friday, Mississippi River Lock and Dam No.4 at Alma, Wisconsin was open to the public as part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers St. Paul District's  150th anniversary celebration.

 

According to Patrick Moes, the deputy chief of public affairs for the St. Paul District, it isn't often that Lock and Dam No.4 is open to the public, mainly due to safety concerns and logistics.

 

Lock and Dam No.4 is unique, in that Pool 4, the section of the river upstream of the dam, is the largest along the Upper Mississippi River, at 44 river miles........
