The Ohio River Basin report card workshop newsletter was published in January. Potential indicators for an assessment of management goals for the Mississippi River were determined at a workshop for the Ohio River Basin in December. This is the second in a series of newsletters that will document progress toward completing the report card through stakeholder meetings in all 6 sub-basins of the Mississippi River. The final list of indicators will be determined by several factors, including data availability and how well they represent achievement of management goals. Results from each sub-basin will be refined and integrated into a report card for the entire Mississippi River Basin.
