America’s Waterway, www.americaswaterway.org, advocates a National Dialogue for the Future of the Mississippi River to build unified, holistic approaches to the great American watershed.
Today this great system, which supplies drinking water to 15 million people, accounts for 60% of US farm exports, and is home to historic sites, formed the roots for American blues and jazz is still managed or regulated by century-old place-based or special-interest-based practices.
Today’s scientists and water managers acknowledge that integrated approaches – including water quality, economic imperatives, and recreational engagement – are needed to protect the Mississippi. Moreover, we have the 21st century tools and processes, to unify the nation’s approach to America’s great waterway.
In this 45 minute live interview, America's Waterway founder, Anne Lewis, discusses with Ed Saltzberg the threats to the River, their implications locally, regionally and nationally and the effort the organization is leading to address them.
