- Program Description
There was a time when the great Mississippi River had its own way, flooding when it got too full, cutting new channels and silting up old ones, even radically changing its course from time to time. Now the river is confined and channeled by levees, dams and locks, the better to serve the industry which has grown up on its banks and illustrates how the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' mammoth river control projects have allowed for tremendous economic development.
