No Fake Lakes on the Pascagoula

 

The Pascagoula River, the last undammed river system of its size class in the lower 48 states, is threatened with the loss of 2800 acres of wetlands if Big Cedar Creek is dammed in George County, Mississippi. Take action now to stop this unnecessary damming project!

In a sneaky move, local governments are disguising their long-standing desire for recreation lakes as industrial water supply, which is misleading to the public. Water storage for downriver industries is not necessary, and industry has not asked for the water.

Submerging working farmland, high quality wetlands and bottomland hardwood forest along Mississippi’s best protected coastal river corridor is the wrong thing to do. Take action to protect the Pascagoula!

Furthermore, project proponents have advocated for using Mississippi’s share of BP oil disaster restoration money to fund this habitat destruction. This is completely inappropriate. Take action now to stop the Fake Lakes project!

Call on the Mobile Army Corps of Engineers District to reject this destructive and unnecessary project in the Pascagoula River watershed! Take action now!
