Upper Missouri River

Corps Concerned About Sediment In The River........

 

The results of a study that looked at the effects of moving sediment from Lewis and Clark Lake in Yankton, North Dakota through the Gavins Point Dam along the Missouri River could be released later this year.

 

According to Paul Boyd, a hydraulic engineer with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the study was driven by habitat development for endangered species.

 

Boyd said that a big component of the study is looking at the effects of sediment flow from the upstream reservoir system into the Lower Missouri River........

Mississippi River At Winona, Minnesota

The Cal Fremling Boat Returned To The Riverfront........

 

Recently, the educational boat, the Cal Fremling returned to Levee Park along the Mississippi Riverfront at Winona, Minnesota.  The vessel's return was celebrated with an open house.

 

The Cal Fremling allows students to perform hands-on research aboard the boat.  Norb Thomes, the vessel's teaching and technology coordinator says that they feel that this allows students to learn more, and retain that knowledge longer.

 

The Cal Fremling is a floating classroom for the Winona State students as well as the community.  A theater and art group had taken the vessel on a voyage in order to learn about sunlight and how the sun's angles affect colors........

Save the Delta Queen

Calling All Boaters

We need your support and action to mobilize and save the Delta Queen.

 

     

SAVE THE DELTA QUEEN ....4-13-18 update


The vote we have been seeking appears to be moving forward next week. In speaking to the house transportation and infrastructure staff it was indicated the house would “work with the senate” regarding the DQ language if it was part of the coast guard authorization bill [ S1129]. In checking S1129 the Delta Queen language that was originally passed as S89 is not in the current version of the bill.
So, team we need to let the senate committee “commerce, science and transportation” know that we the people want the S89 language added to S1129. The committee chair is Sen John Thune from Alaska. We can call bill sponsors, professional staff and the two Missouri senators that sponsored the original S89 bill to make sure they do all they can to get the S89 language added.
Timing is critical Sen Thune has told the press the bill will be voted on next week. The added language could be a floor amendment. We could be celebrating next week.
