Mississippi River Commission High-Water Inspection…

Greetings from snowy Cape Girardeau!

We are in the midst of a three-day snow break at Southeast Missouri State University…  Which is giving me time to finally catch up on lots and lots of things. And, many thanks to Logan Strother, who has kept things going here at the blog while I managed some other issues. If you haven’t been reading his posts on physical takings, you really should! He’s doing a great job.

For my readers along the Mississippi River, the Mississippi River Commission has scheduled its annual high-water inspection trip. For those of us in USACE’s Memphis District, there are two public meetings scheduled:

March 23 at 9 a.m. in New Madrid, MO (City Front)

March 24 at 9 a.m. in Memphis, TN (Beal Street Landing)

The meetings are open to the pubic. The agenda, as posted in the link above, is:

1.  Summary report by president of the Commission on national and regional issues affecting the US Army Corps of Engineers and commission programs and projects on the Mississippi River and its tributaries.

2. District commander’s overview for the commission on current project issues in the respective district area.

3.  Presentations to the commission by local organizations and members of the public giving views or comments on any issue affecting the programs or projects of the commission and the Corps of Engineers.

The Memphis District posted their announcement on March 3rd. Again, if you click the link above, it’ll take you to their post.

This is an opportunity to learn about the various projects going on in the area, as well as an opportunity to present your views if you have an interest in any of the programs or projects of the commission and USACE in the area.
