W. G. Huxtable Pumping Plant

Designed and constructed by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, the plant is the largest of its kind in the world. Its purpose is twofold: to prevent floodwater from the Mississippi River from moving into the St. Francis Basin via the St. Francis River, and to remove water impounded in the lower St. Francis Basin by the Mississippi and St. Francis river levees. Tours by appointment.
