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.
