Floodway project to be discussed

Monday, November 26, 2001

EAST PRAIRIE - A public meeting is scheduled Monday for input on the St. John's Bayou/New Madrid Floodway project.

The supplemental impact statement will be the primary topic of the meeting set for 7 p.m. Monday at the Church of God Family Life Center.

According to Lloyd Smith with Eighth District Representative JoAnn Emerson's office, the project is nearing full-funding, which could complete efforts to close the gap in the Mississippi River levee and prevent flooding. "We hope all interested parties will be there and add their support to the project," Smith said.
