USACE to Hold Public Meetings on Mississippi River Levees

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host four public scoping meetings for the preparation of a supplemental environmental impact statement to address the impacts associated with the construction of remaining authorized work on the Mississippi River levees and Tributaries project.

USACE issued a notice of intent to prepare Supplement II to the Final Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS II), Mississippi River and Tributaries (MR&T) Project, Mississippi River Mainline Levees and Channel Improvement and published in the Federal Register on July 13, 2018.

This work is one of the major features of the MR&T Project used to provide comprehensive flood damage control and risk reduction beginning at Cape Girardeau, Missouri, to the Head of Passes, Louisiana.

SEIS II will evaluate an array of site-specific alternatives, including the no-action alternative, with a focus to avoid and minimize reasonably foreseeable adverse effects from construction of necessary additional authorized MRL project features.

The publication of the notice of intent in the Federal Register begins a formal public scoping comment period, which will continue through October 15, 2018.

The four public meetings are scheduled from 7-9 p.m. as follows:

  • Sept. 10: Holiday Inn Blytheville, 1121 East Main Street, Blytheville, Arkansas 72315;
  • Sept. 11: Vicksburg Convention Center, 1600 Mulberry Street, Vicksburg, Mississippi 39180;
  • Sept. 12: Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, Room C111, 602 North 5th Street, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70802;
  • Sept: 13: United States Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District Headquarters District Assembly Room, 7400 Leake Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana 70118.
