Roundtable Set on WRDA Bill

A Congressional roundtable in New Orleans, set for Friday, will examine issues related to the next Water Resources Development Act (WRDA).

This legislation authorizes the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to carry out navigation, flood control, shoreline protection, hydropower, dam safety, water supply, recreation, environmental restoration and protection, and disaster response and recovery activities throughout the Nation.

Louisiana is home to a diverse portfolio of water resources projects, including levees, pumps, locks and dams, ports, surge barriers, sediment diversions, and wide-scale wetlands restoration – the types of projects the Corps undertakes under WRDA authorities.

This roundtable will provide an opportunity for Members of the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, which will draft the WRDA legislation, to receive input from water resources stakeholders.

The roundtable, entitled “The Importance of Port, Waterway, Flood Control, & Ecosystem Restoration Improvements to the Nation’s Economy: Concepts for the Next Water Resources Development Act,” is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, November 13, 2015, in the Formal Conference Room (4th Floor) of the Louisiana Supreme Court.
