The Vicksburg army corp of engineers hold a virtual meeting addressing the Yazoo backwater pump project.
The virtual meeting got underway on Facebook live Tuesday. There was a q-and-a for concerned residents. Feedback will be used in the decision making process.
"We said a couple of times both of the videos as well as the slide presentations that the operation of the pumps will not convert any wetlands to non wetlands and that's what the new analysis shows and as we think about the construction on the wetlands an important piece of that is the operation of the pumps won't convert any," said Colonel Robert Hilliard, The Commander for the Vicksburg USACE.
The full meeting video can be found on the army corps' Facebook page"Vicksburg Distirct USACE.
