Physical Forces Study, Kampsville, Illinois Waterway. Upper Mississippi River-Illinois Waterway System Navigation

The Upper Mississippi River-Illinois Waterway System (UMR-IWWS) Navigation Study evaluates the justification of additional lockage capacity at sites on the UMR-IWWS while maintaining the social and environmental qualities of the river system. The system navigation study is implemented by the Initial Project Management Plan (IPMP) outlined in U.S. Army Engineer Districts, St. Paul, Rock Island, and St. Louis (1994). The IPMP outlines Engineering, Economic, Environmental, and Public Involvement Plans. The Environmental Plan identifies the following: significant environmental resources on the UMR-IWWS; the impacts to threatened and endangered species; water quality; recreational resources; fisheries; mussels and other macro invertebrates; waterfowl; aquatic and terrestrial macrophytes; and historic properties. In a preliminary way the plan also considers the systemwide impacts of navigation capacity increases, while assessing potential construction effects of improvement projects. The physical forces studies are part of the Environmental Plan.
