Abstract : The purpose of the environmental impact study is to assess the impacts, both positive and negative, of the Corps of Engineers' activities on Pool 7 (LaCrosse, Wisconsin) on the Upper Mississippi River. These activities are defined as operations and maintenance activities and mainly include operations of facilities (locks and dams) and dredging of the navigational channel. An analysis of natural and socioeconomic systems is included, such as impact of river transportation on economy, wildlife habitat, effects of dredge spoil on natural ecosystem, and recreational activities.
