During fiscal year 2011, the Marion, Illinois Ecological Services Office (MISO) coordinated with the St. Louis District Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC), and Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) on several Environmental Management Program projects.

The Upper Mississippi River System Environmental Management Program (EMP) was authorized by Section 1103 of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 1986. The goal of the EMP is to implement “numerous enhancement efforts...to preserve, protect, and restore habitat that is deteriorating due to natural and man-induced activities.”

 

MISO staff completed a final coordination act report for the Ted Shanks Habitat and Rehabilitation and Enhancement Project (HREP) and completed a draft coordination act report for the Rip Rap Landing HREP. In addition, MISO staff attended a Value Engineering Function Analysis Workshop to develop objectives and measures to accomplish those objectives for the Clarence Cannon National Wildlife Refuge HREP.
