Flooding postpones May clean up event

Due to the vast flooding across the region the hatchie river will be approaching technical "Flood stage" by May 8. This not only has flooded the ramps and parking lots but has made the river much more dangerous.

This is nature. This is part of the ecology of the floodplain that remains un-channelized. Bottom land soils are being replenished and forest ecosystems are being nourished; more ox bow lakes are being born and the water is being oxygenated which is critical for aquatic life.
