A workshop exploring the potential for producing electricity on the Mississippi River will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday at Western Illinois University Quad-Cities, Moline, co-hosted by River Action Inc., Davenport and Western.
Registration is still open and may be made online at riveraction.org/umrc.
The cost is $50, including lunch, coffee and materials. For questions, call 563-322-2969.
The hydropower conference is part of River Action's effort to "Raise the Grade" of the Mississippi River — that is, improve it in various categories, including ecosystem health, nutrient reduction (the amount of nitrate and phosphorus in the water) and transportation.
