Scientific Evidence


There have been no Environmental Impact Statements on the impacts of sand and gravel dredging on the Kansas River since the 1990 Final Regulatory Report and Environmental Impact Statement on Commercial Dredging Activities on The Kansas River. 
Summary of the major findings of that report

Links to scientific publications and government reports on the impacts of sand dredging on the Kansas River and Missouri River are provided below.
