Abstract : The Pine Bluff Environmental Inventory and Analysis is a part of the overall Pine Bluff Metropolitan Area Urban Water Management Study being conducted by the Vicksburg District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Nationwide, the Corps of Engineers has been directed by Congress to use its planning capabilities in helping metropolitan areas solve their water and related land resource problems. This new mission of the Corps, known as the Urban Studies Program began in 1972. The Urban Studies Program is a further extension of the Corps' planning responsibilities for flood control, navigation, hydroelectric power, water conservation, recreation, and water-oriented environmental quality. An important segment of the Vicksburg District's overall Pine Bluff study is the establishment of baseline environmental, economic, and social conditions in the Study Area. An inventory and analysis of these conditions and their interrelationships is the cornerstone for developing alternative solutions to the water and related land resource problems of the Pine Bluff Metropolitan Area.
