Yazoo Backwater Area Wetlands—What's New
Proceedings of the 2020 Mississippi Water Resources Conference
Year: 2020 Authors: Johnson D.R.
The historic 2019 Yazoo Backwater flood renewed interest in the Backwater Pump Project. Mississippi's Senators and Congressmen applied pressure to the EPA to reverse the 404 C veto. New information has greatly altered the extent and possible impacts to wetlands in the project area. The use of shallow ground water monitoring wells changed the source of water creating the wetlands, and the use of LIDAR DEM altered their extent.
