With winter rain and snow, Mississippi River water levels bounce back
(MCT) — ST. LOUIS — Barges are carrying full loads on the drought-stricken Mississippi River again after low water levels made shipping a “touch-and-go” proposition late last year.
Since the St. Louis river gauge at Eads Bridge approached a historic low point on New Year’s Day, water levels have bounced back, thanks to badly needed winter snow and rain across the Midwest. The latest round of storms to pound the region are expected to generate additional runoff.
