    of roles,for transport and for living purposes.The Mississippi is not used for agriculture.
    The water from the Mississippi River is used in all sorts of cities.
    PROBLEMS
    The Mississippi is not at all cleaner than it was 10 years ago.
    You most likely can not eat the fish from the river.
    The river is almost allways dirty because of commercial use.
    The reason why you would say the mississipii is dirty is because
    it is not clear,It has rubbish floating,The fish are dead and
    the commercial companies are spurting out pollution every second.
    If you were to drink some water you would have to go through a big progress
    to make it clean.
    History
    There is actualy a ledgend about a man eating catfish
    This is a poem about the Mississippi River
    Majestic stream! along thy banks,
    In silent, stately, solemn ranks,
    The forests stand, and seem with pride
    To gaze upon thy mighty tide;
    As when, in olden classic time,
    Beneath a soft, blue Grecian clime,
    Bent o'er the stage, in breathless awe,
    Crowds thrilled and trembled, as they saw
    Sweep by the pomp of human life,
    The sounding flood of passion's strife,
    And the great stream of history
    Glide on before the musing.
    There, row on row, the gazers rise;
    Above, look down the arching skies;
    O'er all those gathered multitudes
    Such deep and voiceful silence broods,
    Methinks one mighty heart I hear
    Beat high with hope, or quake with fear;--
    E'en so yon groves and forests seem
    Spectators of this rushing stream.
    In sweeping, circling ranks they rise,
    Beneath the blue o'erarching skies;
    They crowd around and forward lean,
    As eager to behold the scene--
    To see, proud river! sparkling wide,
    The long procession of thy tide--
    To stand and gaze, and feel with thee
    All thy unuttered ecstasy.
    It seems as if a heart did thrill
    Within yon forests, deep and still,
    So soft and ghost-like is the sound
    That stirs their solitude profound

    ...
    The Ob River is 3,354 miles long, making it the 7th largest river in the world. A mixture of heavy rainfall, snowmelt, and ice jams in late May and early June of this year caused the Ob River and surrounding tributaries in Western Siberia to overflow their banks. The flooding can be seen in thess image taken on June 16, 2002, by the MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) instrument aboard the Terra satellite. Last year, the river flooded farther north. Normally, the river resembles a thin black line, but floods have swollen the river considerably. Lots of people use the Ob River for fishing.
    Importance

    stuff to. The Ob River is also a very important source of drinking water.
    Issues
    In the early years of operation, the Mayak plant released vast quantities of radioactively contaminated water into several small lakes near the plant. These lakes drain into the Techa River, whose waters ultimately flow into the Ob River.Power Plants have put radioactively contaminated water that runs down theTecha river that automaticly runs down to the Ob river.

    "Later this year a consortium of Brazilian construction and energy companies plans to start building a $4 billion hydroelectric dam on the Inambari River, which starts in the Andes and empties into the Madre de Dios River near Puerto Maldonado. When the dam is completed, in four to five years, its 2,000 megawatts of installed capacity—a touch below that of the Hoover Dam—will make it the largest hydroelectric facility in Peru and the fifth-largest in all of South America.

    More than 350 indigenous and ethnic groups have lived in the Amazon for thousands of years, tapping nature for agriculture, clothing and traditional medicines. Today, more than 30 million people live in the region. Although most live in large urban centers, all residents remain dependent on the Amazon’s ecosystem services for food, shelter and livelihoods.
