 UMRR-EMP LTRMP Data, Tools, & Resources


Congress authorized the Upper Mississippi River Restoration (UMRR) Program in the 1986 Water Resources Development Act to help address ecological needs on the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). Subsequent amendments have helped shape the two major elements  of UMRR- the Habitat Rehabilitation and Enhancement Projects (HREPs) and the Long Term Resource Monitoring (LTRM). Together, HREPs and LTRM are designed to improve the environmental health of the UMRS and increase our understanding of its natural resources.  The UMRR Program was formerly known as the Environmental Management Program (EMP).
