"Raising the Grade" is the theme of the 9th Annual Upper Mississippi River Conference scheduled Oct. 13-14 at the iWireless Center in Moline. The "Report Card for the Mississippi River Watershed," an analysis prepared by America's Watershed Initiative, rated the condition of the overall watershed as D+. Working sessions will be held on the report's seven broad goals: ecosystems, economy, recreation, flood control and flood risk management, transportation, water supply and Gulf of Mexico hypoxia.
