Could The Water Stop In Monroe?

Apr 10, 2017

Financial problems are making upkeep difficult on the Ouachita –Black River system.

Tracy Hilburn, Operations Superintendent of the Tensas Basin Levee District says the system has $30,000,000 in outstanding work that could determine the amount of commercial river traffic that uses the Ouachita River.

Hilburn says if the river traffic doesn’t pick up the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers could walk away from the project. 

Join us Tuesday night as we discuss the issues facing the Ouachita River at KEDM Policy and a Pint  'Ouachita Runs Dry'  Tuesday evening at 6:00 p.m. for our "LIVE" radio program at S.Q.'s on the Ouachita.
