Airport Project Should Ease Flooding In Turkey Creek

The Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport is helping to improve the area around Turkey Creek by digging an underground storm-water retention system near the terminal. 

Airport Director Bruce Frallic says it will serve two purposes - controlling water around the terminal, and reducing water that goes into nearby Turkey Creek during a major rain storm.

Frallic says the pond is designed to withstand a 100-year rainfall event.

The work should finish in the next six months.
