Sign today! The Mississippi river is known nation wide to be the most polluted river in America. Our polluting rate is increasing at such a fast pace that the water's self purification process can't keep up. The Mississippi River runs through or along 10 states, from Minnesota to Louisiana, and was used to define portions of these states' borders, with Wisconsin, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi along the east side of the river, and Iowa, Missouri, and Arkansas along its west side. Substantial parts of both Minnesota and Louisiana are on either side of the river, although the Mississippi defines part of the boundary of each of these states. Effects of pollution of the Mississippi River on Wildlife and Habitats include a long list of extinct and endangered species.
