Pool 14 extends 29.2 miles from Lock and Dam 14 in Le Claire to Lock and Dam 13 near Clinton. Industrial and urban development dominates the upper third of the pool. The middle portion of the pool contains many islands, side channels, and backwaters. The river downstream of Princeton is constricted by the Fulton-Rock Island gorge and lacks side channel or backwater habitats. The Wapsipinicon River empties into Pool 14. The Iowa DNR’s Princeton Wildlife Management Area is located downstream of the mouth of the Wapsipinicon River. The Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge extends downstream into Pool 14 to just upstream of Princeton, Iowa.
