Rock Island District


The Beaver Island Complex project area is located along the right descending bank of the Upper Mississippi River near Clinton, Iowa. The 270-acre Beaver Island Complex represents 16% of Pool 14 backwater habitat. Project lands are federally owned by the Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). All the federally owned lands are managed by USFWS as part of the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge, Savanna District. Upstream portions of the island are privately owned, but are not included in the project area.
