Project Description
The Mississippi River The Mississippi River Hydrodynamic and Delta Management (MRHDM) Study is the first large-scale, long-term restoration assessment investigated under the LCA Program. This study will identify and evaluate a combination of large-scale management and restoration features to address the long-term sustainability of the lower Mississippi River Deltaic Plain, as authorized under Section 7003 of the Water Resource Development Act (WRDA) 2007. The MRHDM Study area covers the lower Mississippi River and the surrounding deltaic regions. The hydrodynamic study effort will focus on the Mississippi River, while the delta management study effort will focus on the adjacent basins.

MRHDMS Geomorphic Assessment Report - July 2014

The LCA MRHDMS Geomorphic Assessment Report, which documents the geomorphic assessment component of the Mississippi River Hydrodynamic and Delta Management Study, is now available to the public. The overall objectives of the geomorphic assessment were to utilize all available data to document the historical trends in hydrology, sedimentation, and channel geometry in the lower Mississippi River and to summarize the local changes observed at locations where repetitive datasets exist and at key reaches determined during the study.
