FY2019 Work Plan Supports Mississippi Dredging Projects

U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith recently announced that the Army Corps will invest an additional $22.5 million on 15 projects in Mississippi, including $3.0 million for a Vicksburg wastewater project and millions for dredging at ports in Gulfport, Pascagoula, Vicksburg, and Greenville.

Hyde-Smith, a Senate Appropriations Committee member, sought the additional funding for Mississippi after President Trump signed into law the FY2019 appropriations bill for the Army Corps.

That bill included additional funding for USACE to use at its discretion on projects that were underfunded or not included in the budget request.

Army Corps activities have a significant impact on the health, public safety, and overall quality of life for many Mississippians,Hyde-Smith said. I am very pleased that this new funding will be put to good use in our state for waterways, levees, and public works.

The funding for Mississippi is outlined in the Army Corps FY2019 Work Plan, which provides a line-by-line account of how additional funding in the FY2019 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act will be allocated in Mississippi and elsewhere around the nation.
