US Army Corps of Engineers
Vicksburg District

Flood of 2011

 

 During a historic flood response such as we are witnessing, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Vicksburg District is continually in support of levee boards, state and local government agencies along the Mississippi River in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi to monitor and inspect the levees.

Public safety is our number one priority and our systems are performing as designed. We will continue working with our local partners to monitor conditions and take any needed action to address any impacts in the Vicksburg District.

There are teams performing joint inspections and surveillance operations searching for cracks, seepage, sink holes, slides or any damage that might jeopardize the integrity of the levee system. Working with levee boards the teams correct problems as they are discovered.

Questions? Please e-mail us at: CEMVK-PA@USACE.ARMY.MIL or call us at 601-631-5000.
