In the Media
FMR is proud to serve as the voice for the Mississippi River and the people who care about it — at the Capitol, in our communities and in the media. Many thanks to the reporters who take the time to cover important river issues.
American Rivers places the Mississippi River Gorge at number six on its 2018 list of the nation's top 10 most-threatened-rivers, citing a pair of locks and dams in Minneapolis-St. Paul that have remained in place despite being closed to commercial barge traffic since 2015. FMR cautiously endorses the idea of restoring the rapids while calling for a robust and extensive commmunity discussion and additional research.
