A Democrat from Illinois and a native of the metro-east, Durbin is a member of a group of lawmakers that has pushed the Corps of Engineers to expedite the effort to remove the rock pinnacles near Thebes, about 125 miles south of St. Louis.

The bottom of the Mississippi there is rock instead of clay like most other places. The work to remove the rock pinnacles was originally planned for February but an emergency was declared, allowing the Corps of Engineers to more quickly issue a contract for the job

Climate change, water shortage play only secondary role in causing conflict – at least so far
Water shortages | Homeland Security News Wire

Quote:
Intelligence services and militaries around the world have been talking about, and preparing for, the danger of “water wars” and about climate change as a threat to national security; the results of an EU-funded research project, however, found that such discourses oversimplify a complex reality; climate and water resource changes are important, but play only a secondary role — at least for the time being — in the causation of conflict and insecurity compared to political, economic, and social factors
