Low Waters on the Mighty Mississippi

Hosted by

Low flows of water have closed the Mississippi River five times this month, most recently on Monday. Yesterday, traffic began to flow again in both directions. But clearing stalled barges is a slow process with potential consequences for the economy, raising troubling questions about the environment. We get an update from Brad Walker, Wetlands and Flood Plain Director for the Missouri Coalition for the Environment, and Bob Anderson, Spokesperson for the Mississippi Valley Division of the Army Corps of Engineers.
