The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) approved a request by Governor Bobby Jindal for a temporary increase of water flow through the Old River Control Structure into the Atchafalaya Basin to offset an anticipated drop in Basin water levels that could create significant adverse ecologic impacts to the area and economic impacts to the State.
