Memphis Engineer District Begins Hatchie-Loosahatchie Restoration Study

The Memphis Engineer District is preparing a Draft Integrated Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement (DIFR-EIS) for the Hatchie-Loosahatchie Mississippi River Ecosystem Restoration Study.

The study seeks to examine restoring ecological structure and function to the mosaic of habitats along the Lower Mississippi River and its floodplain between Miles 775 and 736, including secondary channels and other floodplain aquatic habitats, floodplain forests and several scarce vegetative communities such as wetlands, rivercane, riverfront forests and bottomland hardwood forests.
