Publication Date


This report presents a broad overview of spatial and temporal variation in the water quality of the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). The Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP) provides a systemic perspective through the collection and analysis of monitoring data from six study reaches representing the upper, lower, and open river reaches of the UMRS (Upper Mississippi River: Pools 4, 8, 13, and 26, Open River [near Cape Girardeau, Missouri]; Illinois River: La Grange Pool).
