Scientific Studies & River Reports

Collecting scientific data in order to understand the Missouri Watershed and influence the factors that impact the health and future of the river.

UMOWA has conducted several scientifically valid studies; the reports are posted here and we encourage you to review them.

Our projects have included evidence-based scientific studies designed to focus on the health and viability of the Upper Missouri river. To date, we have concentrated on three major issues: identifying and documenting the aquatic plant life from Holter dam to Cascade, the viability of the insect life in the river, and analysis of the river’s water chemistry and quality.
