Support improvement to Upper Miss system
Tell Congress to support for funding the
Navigation-Ecosystem Sustainability Program (NESP) for the Upper Mississippi River and Illinois Waterway (UMR-IWW).
NESP will restore, protect, and enhance the riverine and riparian habitat through ecosystem restoration measures designed to ensure the sustainability of home to 25 percent of North America’s fish species and a globally important flyway to 40 percent of North America’s migratory waterfowl and shorebirds.
