By NEMS Daily Journal

CORINTH – More than $4 million is headed to Corinth to support a flood control project to protect local businesses.
The Economic Development Administration on Thursday informed Sen. Thad Cochran that the EDA would make disaster relief funding available to the city to support the construction of storm water control systems to minimize flood threats to businesses and residents.
The EDA will provide $4,090,624 through its Fiscal Year 2012 Disaster Relief Opportunity program for the project. The agency anticipates the project will create about 40 jobs and save 107 others.
