Missouri River

No Flooding Forecasted........

 

Starting in mid-March, people living in and around the Missouri River Basin downstream of the Gavins Point Dam can expect to see more water flowing downstream.

 

The initial, increased amount of water will be releases from the Gavins Point Dam, which is intended to support the 2017 navigation season. 

 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has pledged flow support for navigation on the Missouri River, and that the river will be at full service levels during the first half of the 2017 season ending July 1........

Bluff Rock Paintings Destroyed At Alton's "Ruined Castles"........

 

In 1673, the first French explorers to paddle past the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River, near what would eventually become Alton, bestowed a name upon the rock formations festooned with Native American artwork befitting their majesty; The Ruined Castles.

 

Over the intervening years, explorers reported fewer and fewer rock paintings on the bluffs.  When historian Francis Parkman arrived in the Riverbend in 1867, he reported that portions of the bluffs had been quarried away, and that the Piasa Bird had been replaced by an advertisement.

 

It is likely that the bluff paintings were blasted away during the 1850s as Alton was aggressively expanding.  This expansion was fueled by the affordability and profitability of limestone.........

Fix For Clark Bridge Decorative Lighting In The Works........

 

About a month ago, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced plans for repairing the main highway lighting on the Clark Bridge at Alton.  Now, an effort is underway to repair the decorative lighting on the span as well.

 

The City of Alton is looking to fix their part of the span's lighting.  Bob Barnhart, the Alton Public Works Director says that he believes that the wiring is shorted out in several areas below the bridge deck.

 

Barnhart adds that the lighting retrofit could be done with more high-efficiency lighting at some point.  This project has no timeline, and the first step will be to gain the approval of the Alton City Council........

The Mississippi River By The Numbers........

 

After the Missouri River, the Mississippi River is the second longest river in North America, and the fourth longest river in the world, behind the Nile, Amazon, and Yangtze Rivers.

 

The Mississippi River Basin is the biggest drainage system in North America, draining 31 states, as well as two Canadian provinces. 

 

The Missouri and Ohio Rivers are tributaries of the Mississippi River, and when the lengths of these three rivers are combined, the Mississippi River system is considered the third largest in the world........

Corps Improving River Monitoring ........

 

Soon, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be able to do a better job of monitoring the Mississippi River stages by using information gathered from a Vicksburg bridge.

 

On Monday, the Corps and Warren County officials signed an agreement that would allow the Corps to upgrade the equipment on the old U.S. Route 80 Bridge.

 

Greg Raimondo, spokesman for the Corps, says that work on the upgrades will start in around two weeks.  The upgraded system will send river stage information directly to a satellite, which will forward it to the Corps and other agencies........

Thieves Targeting Lower Units........

 

Over the winter, the Lake of the Ozarks is fairly quiet.  The majority of boats have been winterized, secured and placed in storage.  Lake homes and condos are vacant, and thieves have been taking advantage of this opportunity to steal lower units off of unattended boats.

 

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that this winter, the thefts are especially bad, and that bass boats appear to be the main target.  MSHP Sergeant Scott White says that Mercury lower units seem to be what thieves are going after.

 

Sergeant White says that there are several steps boaters can take to deter thieves.  He said that thieves are discouraged by time, noise, and visibility.  White adds that when considering dock and boat security, try to think like a thief, and try to determine what would make your boat an easy target........
