Posted on September 15, 2022

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and Non-Federal Sponsor, the Lower Mississippi River Conservation Committee (LMRCC), has scheduled a public scoping meeting for the Hatchie-Loosahatchie Mississippi River Ecosystem Restoration Study. The study is being conducted in cooperation with LMRCC, which is a coalition of state natural resource conservation and environmental quality agencies.

The meeting is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 19, 2022, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at Fort Pillow State Park Visitor Center/Museum, 3122 Park Road, Henning, TN 38041.

The scoping meeting’s purpose is to inform the public of the study process and to solicit input on the scope, significant issues, and development of alternatives to be analyzed. The study will examine restoration of ecological structure and function along the Mississippi River between River Miles 775 and 736, including side channels, floodplain waterbodies, and other aquatic habitat. It will also examine floodplain forests, and several scarce vegetative communities such as wetlands, canebrakes, riverfront forests and BLH forests.  Information about the study is available online at the project webpage:

During the meeting, USACE and LMRCC will present study-related information and accept questions and comments. Written comments may also be sent by e-mail to and by mail to the following address:
