Drought on the River

Drought always raises the question of navigation on oour inland waterways.  I caught this empty tow going up river today.  River navigation is extremely important to our agricultural export business.  The Corps of Engineers is charged with maintaining a 9 foot navigation channel at least 300 feet wide.  After I got this shot I also saw this story in the St. Louis Post Dispatch .  Misssissippi and Ohio River navigation is still chugging along.  others are not so lucky.
