Death Looms for a Flood-Control Project

Story today in the Times about the EPA notifying the Army Corps of Engineers that it would not allow two pumps to be installed at Steele Bayou, Mississippi. The environmental damage much outweighs the gain of farmers being able to plant more marginal land and receive more subsidies from the federal government. Will the EPA hold firm (first time in a decade they've tried this)? Remember, Corps of Engineers and EPA, Saddam drained the swamps, and we call him a monster.
