Oh, mercy mercy me

And we wonder why our native freshwater mussel populations in Ozark rivers are tanking. Add insult to injury with motorboats, fescue pasture up to the edge of the riverbank and increased urbanization in the watershed, not to exclude massive ranch style houses on the shoreline, and you end up with a horribly damaged river system.
St. Louis saved this river once before, but now it's not even defensible and it's dying with a whimper.
