The Mississippi Basin Model - 1975 Brochure

Dear Readers,

I have written about the famous Mississippi Basin Model before. If you click on the link and scroll to the bottom of the article, you will see links to older posts. The model was neglected for decades but is now being cleaned by Friends of Mississippi River Basin Model (Facebook:  @FriendsofMississippiRiverBasinModel).
Aerial view of the Mississippi Basin Model with red outline showing area that has been cleared and cleaned as of June, 2018 (from Friends of the Mississippi River Basin Model).
For more information on the design, purpose, and background, the Waterways Experiment Station prepared a booklet describing the Mississippi Basin Model. The booklet is a .pdf file, but the link will open it. It is well-written and illustrated; please take time to read it.
