Year in Review: ‘Water, water everywhere’ in 2010
The word “water” was surely the most printed and discussed in Tunica County in 2010, with both the city and county pondering rate changes, the city mulling large expenditures to its aging utilities and farmers and homeowners feeling nature’s caprices, as the year first brought more water than we wanted and then a months-long drought last summer that threatened to finish off cotton and soybean crops.
The town kicked off 2010 asking citizens to conserve in the wake of freezing temperatures, after the town water system experienced loss of volume and pressure.
Extreme cold continued into February, bringing three snowfalls in succession. And flash floods in May dumped four inches of water in less than three hours into already overtaxed storm drains.
