Baltimore Bend Interception Rearing Complex Project

Posted: 6/23/2016

Expiration date: 7/23/2016


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District is proposing an interception-rearing-complex (IRC) project in the Missouri River at Baltimore Bend. Baltimore Bend is located in Lafayette County, Missouri. The goal of this project is to develop and increase IRC habitat for the federally endangered pallid sturgeon within the lower Missouri River. This project will help test the hypothesis that mostly passive free-floating pallid sturgeon embryos and larvae are entrained in the thalweg, the deepest fastest flowing portion of the channel, and are unable to move to the channel margins where environmental conditions may be more suitable for their growth and survival.
