Coon Rapids TV • ‘State of the River’ Highlights Improvements, Concerns on the Mississippi [Video]

Much of the rain we see finds its way to the Mississippi River, and a new study on the river out this week shows both healthy trends and cause for concern.

The Friends of the Mississippi River released its “State of the River Report” offering new data on potential dangers, and tips on how to keep it clean.

“The Mississippi is a great treasure, it’s our claim to fame here in the Twin Cities,” Friends of the Mississippi River Executive Director Whitney Clark said.

That famous waterway, which draws the border of Coon Rapids and Brooklyn Park, is also drawing attention to those concerned about its future.
