Chicot Memorial

GREENVILLE MS (Ben Caxton) — The Army Corps of Engineers will invest an additional $22.5 million on 15 projects in Mississippi including a Vicksburg wastewater project and dredging at ports in Gulfport, Pascagoula, Vicksburg, and Greenville. More than half of the $22.5 million is earmarked for projects on the Mississippi River and its tributaries, including $8 million for bank stabilization and channel improvements on the Upper Yazoo. The 2019 funding is on top of the more than $73 million already included in the 2019 Energy and Water Development bill for projects in the state including Mississippi River and tributaries flood control and navigation projects and harbor maintenance.
