Mississippi River Lowering
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lowered the Mississippi River's water level in October 2020 to perform routine inspections on the lock and dam and other structures that are normally under water. The Army Corps hasn't lowered the water level like this since 2008 making this an unusual and fun event to witness. For those from our team who visited, it was amazing to see what lies below the great Mississippi. Thanks to our employees who were there for the event and were able to share some awesome photos with us!
