Members of Congress are pushing for construction of the environmentally devastating Yazoo Pumps project, putting some of the nation’s richest wetlands back on the chopping block after President George W. Bush vetoed the project through the Clean Water Act in 2008.

If resurrected, the Yazoo Pumps will damage more than 200,000 acres of wetlands in the heart of the Mississippi River Flyway. More than 450 species of fish and wildlife, including the Louisiana black bear, rely on the wetlands habitat that would be drained by the project.

Please tell your members of Congress to protect the nation’s vital wetlands and abandon efforts to resurrect the antiquated, wasteful, and devastating Yazoo Pumps.
