NWF sues the Corps of Engineers

The Water Resources Development Act is heading to the President’s desk. But I’m tired of talking about WRDA, and this fun thing happened yesterday:
The National Wildlife Federation and several other environmental groups sued the Corps of Engineers to stop them from building river training structures and force an independent study of dikes on the Mississippi River.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has a good article on the lawsuit here.
And, the P-D published an Op Ed piece I submitted last month on river training structures and how the Corps turns a deaf ear to citizen concerns. Read that here.
