NASA.Gov Announces Hazard:Flooding Along the Illinois River!

Because the waters of our State are vital to commerce. sport, food, transportation, hauling ~ and habitat, this public announcement may be of interest to you. The Illinois River is a major tributary of the Mississippi River.

Anyone, even a person who is not a scientist knows that if there is a bowl shape water will flow into the depression. Significant Basins are vital to the Hydro-sphere [the hydro-sphere is the water systems and circulations.] of an area.

Only, recently has it been acknowledged that pollution, dust, toxins, warming can happen in one area, but affect the entire globe and it's bio-sphere. (The goods that keep us alive and healthy).

Less than 30 years ago, no one considered spraying DDT on vegetables to kill bugs could hurt people. Even less the fact of run-off from their application of poisons like DDT, would affect an entire water supply and health of every living thing. All that is being said, to consider we have made bad assumptions in the recent past, or didn't take into the equation what our 'progress' will cost at the end.

The State of Arkansas is dependent upon the health of the Mississippi River Basin. There are active programs now setting "watches" on the health of the Mississippi River Basin. Hypoxia is a concern; "Hypoxia: is a pathological condition which the body as a whole, or a region of the body is deprived of oxygen- that part dies eventually" - HELLO!,+Illinois+River,+Arkansas&cd=10&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us Is a National Weather Service link to the River Watch.
