Missouri River Study

This study will be lead by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) through Maritime Administration (MARAD), and coordinated with the Departments of Energy, Commerce, and Agriculture. The study will address the uses and impacts of the Missouri River on the following: energy (including hydropower and generation cooling), water transport (including water-compelled rates, projected total transportation congestion considerations transportation energy efficiency, air quality and carbon emissions), and water users. USDOT and its Federal partners must develop recommendations on how to minimize impediments to growth and maximize water value of benefits related to the above factors.
