The Mississippi River and Tributaries Project, or MR&T, is the largest flood control project in the world. MR&T plays an integral role in protecting the Lower Mississippi Valley from devastating floods and enables continuous navigation along the Mississippi River and its tributaries. Congress must prioritize the projects that provide taxpayers the best return on their investment. There are a few government-funded programs that can boast a 46 to 1 return. These projects are critical infrastructure investments designed to address the depletion of the Alluvial and Sparta aquifers, which will result in a severe disruption in the agriculture economy of the Delta Region.
