FILE - This Nov. 28, 2012 file photo provided by The United States Coast Guard shows man-made dikes, perpendicular to the shore, that direct the water flow back into the river to maintain a navigable depth along on the Mississippi River South of St. Louis. The National Weather Service revised the Mississippi River forecast Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012, offering a bit of a reprieve for shippers, showing the water level isn't dropping as quickly as feared. Still, at least two large barge companies already are reducing loads over concerns about the river's depth. (AP Photo/United States Coast Guard, Colby Buchanan, File)
