Either of two new routes—through the Atchafalaya Basin or through Lake Pontchartrain—might become the Mississippi's main channel if flood-control structures are overtopped or heavily damaged during a severe flood.[91][92][93][94][95]. The Mississippi River Headwaters Watershed is located in north-central Minnesota and covers 1,255,105 acres in a highly forested region of the state.

The Middle Mississippi is relatively free-flowing. In particular, the Corps of Engineers made many improvements and constructed additional facilities for routing water through the vicinity. This topography contrasts strongly with the Lower Mississippi, which is a meandering river in a broad, flat area, only rarely flowing alongside a bluff (as at Vicksburg, Mississippi). Each year more than half a million visitors from around the globe visit Minnesota’s Itasca State Park, 20 miles north of Park Rapids.

In effect, the U.S. ceded the northwestern extremity of the Mississippi basin to the British in exchange for the southern portion of the Red River basin. Beginning in the 1970s, the Corps applied hydrological transport models to analyze flood flow and water quality of the Mississippi.
