    Additional Notes
    The Service coordinated with USEPA, the States and Excelon over a proposed plan to increase temperature loading into the Mississippi River where Higgins' eye pearlymussel beds are situated around the mixing zones. The NPDES permit is jointly issued by the States of Iowa and Illinois because the diffuser pipe spreads across the width of the river, covering two jurisdictions.
