Sandy Rosenthal, Founder of Levees.org

It was a busy morning for the non-profit group Levees.org. Our commentary was featured in two respected news sources. First, in a national story by CBS Moneywatch on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' failure to implement Congress's directives to make all levees in the nation safer. An hour later, the New Orleans Times-Picayune featured a joint oped by me and Stephen Estopinal, past president and 5+ year veteran of the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East. The national story and the co-authored expert piece are proof that your efforts are paying off. They are evidence that your time supporting Levees.org is well-invested.

Thank you for your help!

Levee inspections are better than pre-Katrina, but still need to go deeper

"New Orleans is about to embark on a $115 million, three-year project to upgrade drainage in eight neighborhoods, the largest effort to date to enact new strategies focused on retaining – rather than immediately pumping out – rainwater.

Eight neighborhoods are included in the effort: Pontilly, Mirabeau Gardens, Lakeview, Hagan-Lafitte, St. Roch, Academy Park, a piece of Algiers and a project referred to as the Broadmoor Drainage Upgrades that also includes Central City, the Garden District and other nearby neighborhoods.

“We had to prove the projects will actually reduce flooding” to get the federal money, said Jeff Hebert, executive director of the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority and the city’s chief resiliency officer. Hebert will soon be stepping into the role of Landrieu’s chief administrative officer."

Say goodbye to elevated stretch of Bonaventure Expressway

Montreal started tearing down part of the expressway this week, promising to replace it with two boulevards and a series of green spaces by September 2017.
