3 Arkansas Flood Control Projects to Get Funding

February 24, 2010

Three flood control projects in Arkansas are among projects in five states that will share $9.4 million in federal funding.

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced the funding as part of the federal stimulus program.

Arkansas will receive a total of $418,000. The Ozan Creek Site 11 in Hempstead County will get $145,000, the Poteau River Site 4 in Scott County gets $162,500 and South Fourche Site 1 in Perry County will receive $110,000.

Vilsack says the money is for remedial repairs where there is a risk of infrastructure failure that would threaten life and property.

The other states sharing the funding are Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Kentucky.
