Print Friendly Version

Project Leader Tracy Hill accompanied Ecological Services Field Supervisor Charlie Scott to Jefferson City, Missouri, for a meeting with Missouri Department of Conservation and Missouri Department of Natural Resources regarding Lock and Dam #1 on the Osage River. 

The purpose for the meeting was for the Fish and Wildlife Service to present potential funding options available to stabilize and provide fish passage at the structure.  Several funding options were presented with advantages and disadvantages of each option discussed. 

All groups involved in the meeting agreed that they would like to see fish passage provided at the structure which has the potential to benefit many native riverine species.  Discussions will continue as the agencies work together to provide fish passage at this structure.
