On Thursday, June 16th, Mike Klingner, President and CEO of Klingner & Associates, P.C., will present his insights on “The Upper Mississippi River: Where It’s Been, and Where It’s Going.” He will talk about the history of our River, flood control efforts dating from the early 1880s, with special details from 1935-1999 during the career of his father, William H. Klingner, P.E., P.L.S., who surveyed locations for the locks and dams, and designed and consulted on drainage and levee districts’ pump stations and drainage improvements from the Missouri “boot-heel” to Rock Island, Illinois. William Klingner was founder of the Upper Mississippi Flood Control Association, and his book, “My Turn at Watch,” will be available after the presentation. The presentation will end on the current efforts, including discussions in Congress on the Water Resource Development Act (WRDA) 2016, toward the needs for a Comprehensive Plan to address systemic flood control for the Upper Mississippi River.
