Missouri River Recovery Implementation Committee

What is MRRIC?

The Missouri River Recovery Implementation Committee (MRRIC) serves as a forum where people with diverse interests in the Missouri River basin can collaborate on recommendations for implementing the Missouri River Recovery Program.

For more information on the purpose and scope of the MRRIC as well as the duties and responsibilities of its members, please read the MRRIC Charter. Also see other MRRIC-related Documents.

Why MRRIC?

MRRIC provides a forum for stakeholders, tribes, states, and federal agencies within the Missouri River Basin to develop recommendations that consider the needs of the various groups affected by management actions.

  • The Missouri River drains one-sixth of the United States, encompassing over 529,350 square miles; the river flows 2,341 miles through seven states.
  • MRRIC has seats for 29 Native American Tribes located within, or with historical ties to, the basin.
  • There are many diverse non-governmental stakeholders with lives and livelihoods linked to the river (e.g., farmers, waterway industries, hydro and thermal power, outdoor recreationists, and many more).

Background

MRRIC was authorized by Congress in Section 5018 of the 2007 Water Resources Development Act (WRDA). This authorization included a provision for MRRIC to provide guidance on a study of the Missouri River and its tributaries, known as the Missouri River Ecosystem Restoration Plan (MRERP). That study was suspended per the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2012 (Section 120).

In July 2008, the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works, John Paul Woodley, signed the Implementation Guidance for Section 5018 of WRDA 2007, thus approving the Charter for MRRIC and establishing the Committee.

MRRIC is exempt from the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA).
