The Missouri River Recovery Program (MRRP) is a comprehensive effort led by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Tribes, states, other federal agencies and non-governmental organizations to develop and implement actions to create a healthy Missouri River.

The MRRP consists of:

-The Missouri River Bank Stabilization and Navigation Project (BSNP) Fish
and Wildlife Mitigation Project

- The Amended Biological Opinion and the Corps’ Record of Decision related
to the Master Water Control Manual for the Missouri River

- The 2007 Water Resources Development Act

Each of these guiding authorities set out goals and requirements for helping with river recovery. They support, compliment and reinforce each other in achieving the goal of Missouri River recovery.
