Question Description

This is not a book report or a personal soapbox; it is an opportunity for you to reflect on the multiple perspectives and complex relationships presented by McPhee in Atchafalaya. You have quite a bit of latitude in your approach; you can consider a single perspective or the interaction of multiple perspectives.

The Evolution of the Mississippi River System – Outline
Thesis: My perspective is that apart from preventing the river from changing its course, the
Army Corps of Engineer has not succeeded in reducing flooding along River Mississippi.
1. Today, the Mississippi no longer fits the definition of a river as a natural watercourse
flowing towards another water body such as the ocean, sea, or another river
2. Due to the significance of the Mississippi River to human activities, the Army Corps of
Engineers decided to construct a control structure to prevent river Atchafalaya from
changing the course of Mississippi and maintaining its drainage capacity.
3. As a result, the structure of the Morgan City, Louisiana has changed and faces the risk of
getting destroyed in case the river overflows its bank.
4. Even though the Army Corps of Engineers have been trying to construct a stable flood
control structure, it has not succeeded as the occurrence of natural floods continues
causing severe impacts.
Conclusion: Overall, in its effort to maintain the river as a navigable and useful waterway, the
Army Corps of Engineers has not succeeded in preventing flooding along River Mississippi.
