2007 Mississippi River Navigation Book

The Mississippi River, at over 2,300 miles long, is the longest river in the United States (when combined with its tributary Missouri River). It drains most of the area between the Rocky Mountains and the Appalachian Mountains. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is responsible for providing data pertaining to navigation on and along the river. As part of a comprehensive mapping project, USACE developed updated Flood Control and Navigation maps as well as Hydrographic Survey maps for the Mississippi River.
