Mississippi River Commission Public Hearing in Memphis
Maj. Gen. Richard G. Kaiser, Mississippi River Commission president, opens the Memphis public hearing, April 9, 2019, by sharing a historical Fisk map which shows the movement of the Mississippi River over time. The map is a reminder of why our country has worked to harness the river. And, why the Mississippi River Commission​ serves to provide water resources engineering direction and policy advice to the Administration, Congress and the Army in a drainage basin that covers 41 percent of the United States and parts of two Canadian provinces. By overseeing the planning and reporting on the improvements on the Mississippi River, the mission of the MRC today is the same as the mission placed on the commission upon its creation—to lead sustainable management and development of water related resources for the nation’s benefit and the people’s well-being.
