Desoto County is the fastest growing county in Mississippi. With a population of over 175,000 residents, it is also the third most populated county in Mississippi. Unfortunately, it experiences frequent floods that cause economic losses and threaten lives.
Congress authorized a study in DeSoto County to determine the feasibility of providing flood risk management solutions to the area. The Project Delivery Team (PDT) responsible for conducting the feasibility study has been working for over a year now, with their most recent meeting taking place earlier this month.
