Saved – 200,000 Acres of Wetlands

The Yazoo Pumps project would damage up to an astonishing 200,000 acres of wetlands by using massive hydraulic pumps to transfer 6 million gallons of water per minute from the Mississippi Delta into the Yazoo River. On August 31, 2008, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency finalized a Clean Water Act Sect. 404 Veto of this project for good. To find out more, go to and click on Projects in the Field.
