LACMRERS was designed and equipped to support research and education relating to the Mississippi River and large river systems in general, encouraging the study of diverse and interacting facets of river science and aquatic ecology. LACMRERS is the first university-owned research and education center on the Upper Mississippi River, operated by the University of Iowa, College of Engineering’s IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering. Created with financial support from the Carver Charitable Trust, LACMRERS was named for Lucille A. Carver. Ms. Carver was instrumental in the establishment of LACMRERS near Muscatine, Iowa, her hometown, in 2001.
