The MKARNS system is made up of 445 river miles with a minimum water depth of nine feet.  Its benefits include: water supply, navigation, fish and wildlife conservation, recreation, hydroelectric generation, and flood control.  Over the past 30 years, the MKARNS has created 54,000 jobs, generating a payroll of over $1 billion.
