Drawdown halted, dredging continues in Mississippi River near Alma
Habitat restoration in the Mississippi River near Alma will be delayed because the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has suspended the drawdown of Pool 5 which began in June.
The Corps made the move after a tugboat was grounded and a channel in the river closed earlier this month.
In a release the Corps said the grounding was not because of the drawdown which was going on at the time.
According to the Corps, water levels were near normal at the time of the grounding.
