1 Public law incorrectly states that the Ohio River runs from junction with the Mississippi River at RM 0 to junction of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, at RM 981; the correct information is provided here and was confirmed with Mark Pointon, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, on January 8, 2015. Furthermore, for No. 24, public law refers incorrectly to Holstein and French Rivers, and for No. 27, public law refers incorrectly to Warrior River at Demopolis, Tennessee; both errors are corrected here.
