Low Flying Helicopters Over The Delta Not From The U.N.

Chicot Memorial

THE DELTA (Ben Caxton) — If you see a low-flying helicopter over the Delta, there’s no cause for alarm. It’s just gathering information for a 3-D water resource map. The U.S. Geological Survey says it will fly in a grid pattern over rural areas north and west of Greenwood to Sunflower and Ruleville during the next few weeks. A long wire underneath the helicopter will carry a tube holding specialized instruments to do the high-resolution geophysical survey; scientists will use data to create high-resolution maps of aquifers to depths of about 200 feet below ground. The work is for the Mississippi Alluvial Plain Regional Water Availability project and maps will be made available to the public.
