ROSEDALE, MS (Ben Caxton) — The U.S. Army Corp of engineers has dredged up some money for harbor work in Rosedale. As part of $55.9 million in spending allocated to projects in Mississippi this fiscal year, the corps plans to spend $1.19M to dredge the harbor in Rosedale to remove sediments and debris from the river bottom. The 2018 Work Plan will also provide $131,000 for similar work at the mouth of the Yazoo River, $3.6 million in construction funds to support the DeSoto County Regional Utility Authority wastewater facility, $1.5 million for a storm water management study for North DeSoto County, and $2.4 million for water supply work in Flowood and wastewater infrastructure in Starkville. The Army Corps also said they plan to use $45.3 million to invest in Mississippi River and Tributaries projects in the state, including $27.1 million in construction funding for the Delta Headwaters, Upper Yazoo, Big Sunflower River, and Yazoo Backwater Area flood control projects.
