Environmental Protection Agency Calls for More Stringent Standards on Mississippi River

Last month, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determined that new or revised water quality standards are necessary to protect the Mississippi River in Missouri. The state of Missouri did not assign the highest level of recreational use to a 195.5-mile segment of the Mississippi River that flows from St. Louis to the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. EPA directs the state to address standards for this section of the river to ensure protection recreational uses.
