Abstract: A coordinated Federal-State interagency study to outline a comprehensive plan for development of the water and related resources of the Pascagoula River Basin was completed in 1968. Purposes considered included: flood control, water supply, navigation, hydroelectric power, land treatment, recreation, fish and wildlife, and pollution abatement. Each purpose was given equal consideration. The economy of the area was projected to the years 1980 and 2015, and these projections were related to resource development needs. A plan to develop the water and related land resources to meet the projected needs is presented and responsibility for implementation of the various portions of the plan is recommended.
