STUTTGART — Federal officials plan to tour several projects in east Arkansas that are reducing water and nutrient pollution in the Mississippi Delta.

Officials with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Agriculture will join state and local leaders on a series of tours Tuesday. The officials will visit farms in Stuttgart and also stop by the 5 Oaks Duck Lodge and Hollowell Reservoir at Bayou Meto.

At each stop, farmers and experts will discuss strategies to reduce the amount of nitrogen and phosphorus that reach waterways and the Mississippi Delta.

The tour is part of the Mississippi River/Gulf of Mexico Water Nutrient Task Force annual meeting, which will be held Wednesday in Little Rock.
