2019 Mississippi River Commission Public Hearing - Rosedale
Maj. Gen. Richard Kaiser, president of the Mississippi River Commission, opened the Rosedale, Mississippi, public hearing aboard the Motor Vessel MISSISSIPPI, April 9, 2019, by explaining current precipitation trends. 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. The MRC's public hearing process allows stakeholders, partners, elected officials and the public to present their views on matters affecting the water resources infrastructure needs in the Mississippi Valley, including flood control, the Mississippi River and Tributaries project, and other water resources challenges.
