Hello, my name is Ann Dahl and I live on Eagle Lake, eight miles north west of the Steel Bayou Flood Control Structure in Mississippi.
When I was in school, I was one of those invisible kids. Not in the popular crowd and not running with the wild ones. I just did everything I could to blend into the crowd and not be noticed. It was not until my forties that I started gaining a little confidence and finding my voice. But now I find myself in a situation, in my retirement years, that demands that I stand up for what I believe is right. I have always wanted to write but not sure how to go about it - so bear with me. I hope I can spread the facts mixed with personal experience to help correct a travesty that has been wrought on the people of the lower Mississippi delta - myself included.
I do not claim to be an expert on the Yazoo Backwater Pump Project. I am just an informed citizen trying to accumulate information and get it to the largest audience possible. I hope you find it helpful in forming your own opinions and will join us in this fight.
