EPA wants more information on proposed port expansions
Published: April 11,2013
GULFPORT — The federal government wants environmental studies on three projects related to the expansion of the state Port of Gulfport conducted so the impact on the entire Turkey Creek Watershed can be determined.
The Environmental Protection Agency made those comments in a letter to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers office in Mobile, Ala.
The Sun Herald reports the projects singled out by the EPA are still in the planning stage.
The Corps of Engineers is the lead agency for environmental assessments of port expansion; plans by Ward Investments to develop property in the Turkey Creek Watershed between U.S. Highway 49 and Canal Road in Gulfport; and a port connector road the state plans to build near Canal Road south of Interstate 10 to the port.
