What is the MS Levee Board?

The Board of Mississippi Levee Commissioners has the constitutional responsibility to the State of Mississippi to operate and maintain a system of levees along the Mississippi River. They also have the legislative authority to participate with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on various projects on the interior drainage such as the Big Sunflower River and Tributaries Project, Upper Steele Bayou Project and the Yazoo Backwater Project. Those specific areas of responsibility are levee maintenance and interior stream maintenance.
