Mississippi River Land Use Allocation

The Upper Mississippi River Land Use Allocation Plan documents the preparation and coordination for determining the best use of Federal Lands along the Mississippi River between Guttenberg, IA and Minneapolis, MN. The primary objective of this plan is to balance and enhance public recreational use and fish and wildlife management while maintaining the river navigation system. Because so much of the federal land along the river is cooperatively managed by the Corps on Engineers and the Fish and Wildlife Service the two agencies have worked together in the preparation of this land use plan so that future management decisions are made cooperatively and in accordance with established policy.
