About This Website

This page was assembled to help communicate information about NESP among NGOs and local units of government (LGs) as a personal mission by Fritz Funk (with the assistance of others who also share long historical perspectives of the UMR), and does not represent the view or opinion of any NGO, LG, or other entity.

A well-informed NGO and LG community, representing their stakeholder groups, provides a broad and diverse array of public involvement that in our view is essential to the function of NESP and critical to the management of the Upper Mississippi River.

We appreciate the assistance of UMRBA in providing some of the historical documents on this website.
