Assignment to this county of Iwo CCC units, each of about 160 men, one to be located at Blytheville and one at Wilson, will be asked. Completion of the proposed work, it Is estimated, would require about five years. Tile application Is being prepared by J. W. Meyer, engineer lor Drainage District 11, and C. G. Redman, in behalf of .Sheriff C. H. Wilson and J. H. Grain, of Wilson, who have been elcslgnateel by the drainage districts of tin: county to represent them In the matter as sponsors' agents. The project calls for the re- drcdglng of 159 miles of drainage ditches and for the removal of debris, minor silt accumulations nnd tree growths from 1,100 miles. It covers all of the county except. Ihe small part unprotected by levees. Millions In Benefits Were the drainage districts of tlie county .financially able to do the proposed work of rehabilitation 11 woijld:cost them: at least *> SI,OCO,poa,--it ft estlmiit'ed' by : Mr; Meyer, wlio said tliaf the program outlined for Drainage District 17 nlone could not be accomplished by the district for less than $300,OCO. He estimates benefits, to .-property within the county through more effective drainage at 'not less than $3,000,000. Financial inability of Ihe districts to carry .on adequate maintenance programs has resulted in serious deterioration of the county's drainage system, Mr. Meyer pointed out. Some land has already been forced out of cultivation and a good deal more Is near the border line. The work which CCC units are carrying on In Missouri, resulting in more rapid run-off of water from the north, is accentuating the problem in this county, he added. Rehabilitation of the "county's drainage system Is badly needed not only •to carry off local water but also to handle the increased volume of water which will come down from Missouri as a result of the work there. i Will Submit Application While t'he application provides for the location of one of the proposed CCC camps at Blytheville and the other at . Wilson, camp sites are supjccl to later determination. The government requires lhat project sponsors furnish satisfactory sites whic'h must b2 readily accessible and provided with city water am' sewer service.
