    The Corps of Engineers' Upper Mississippi River Restoration (UMRR) program (formerly known as the Environmental Management Program or EMP) has studies and projects in the Upper Mississippi River system north of Cairo, Illinois.
    The system includes the Illinois River. The program authorized by Congress in 1986 emphasizes habitat rehabilitation and enhancement projects and long-term resource monitoring. The habitat project component includes dredging backwater areas and channels, constructing dikes, creating and stabilizing islands, and controlling side channel flows and water levels. In the St. Paul District, the projects are located along the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers from Guttenberg, Iowa (Lock and Dam 10), to Minneapolis, Minnesota, a distance of about 250 river miles. The long-term resource monitoring component includes monitoring trends and impacts with respect to selected resources, developing products for resource management decisions, and maintaining river information databases.
