      Other waterways listed as among the 10 most endangered include the Big Sunflower River in Mississippi at No. 3, followed by the Puyallup River in Washington state, the South Fork Salmon River in Idaho, the Menominee River in Michigan and Wisconsin, Rapid Creek in South Dakota, Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia and Florida, the Ocklawaha River in. The Work Plan directs funding toward flood control projects in the Yazoo basin and other tributary basins, including the Delta Headwaters, Upper Yazoo, Big Sunflower River and Yazoo Backwater Area.

      The Big Sunflower River – with , acres of surrounding wetlands – near Vicksburg, Mississippi, tops the list as the most endangered river in the U.S. in   Luckett tells The Associated Press that the Big Sunflower River and tributaries are out of their banks and flooding homes, businesses and the city school system central office.

    Water is near to entering homes along the river. Manysecondary roads are inundated. Low lying streets along the river in the city of Sunflower begin to flood. Water begins to spread across farmland from flooding at Jones Bayou. Widespread agricultural flooding is a occurring in this area. Farm roads to catfish ponds become inundated. FACTS The Big Sunflower River Maintenance Project was developed to improve the river channel capacity to reduce extensive headwater flooding that occurs approximately every one to five years in the Big Sunflower River Basin of the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta. The initial project was completed by the Corps in the s.

The Habitat Improvement Team recommended the following improvement features: (a.) dike fields with either three or five dikes, (b.) low-water weirs that reach completely across the river, (c.) gravel bars, (d.) structures made of polyvinyl chloride pipe or logs to attract invertebrates and fishes, (e.) no-work areas where no dredging will occur, and (f.) avoidance areas where dredging will be restricted to.

The Quiver River is a tributary of the Big Sunflower River. Historically, the Quiver River was a low gradient, meandering river with riparian corridors, instream cover and enough year-round flow to provide habitat for a variety of mussel and fish species.

A small but dynamic river, once forested, now mostly bordered by fields, the Sunflower is a rich habitat for all creatures native to.

The Big Sunflower River in northwestern Mississippi drains about 8, km2, is a low-gradient slowly-moving stream, and has historically provided a valuable ecological, navigational and recreational resource.

However, present conditions are characterized by depauperate physical habitat, depressed baseflows linked to falling groundwater levels, Mississippi book turbidity, and chronically low dissolved Cited by: 3.

The Big Sunflower and its tributaries comprise one of the few remaining river systems in the Mississippi Delta not already severely altered by flood-control projects. The proposed dredging and clearing would wipe out thousands of acres of bottomland hardwood wetlands, taking a huge toll on fish, waterfowl wintering grounds and freshwater mussel.

Steele Bayou Control Structure: When the Mississippi River is high it forces its watery influence up the Yazoo River and floods all unprotected low-lying areas of the south delta including the bottomlands of the Sunflower River.

The Steel Bayou Control Structure was built to shut off the south delta from the effects of the flooding Mississippi.

The lower Missouri River, flowing through Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska, was named the second-most-endangered river, followed by the Big Sunflower River in Mississippi.
