Image source: USACE

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District, will host a general scoping meeting this week to gather input for Feasibility Studies for the Upper Barataria Basin Coastal Storm Risk Management and The Amite River and Tributaries-Comprehensive Study East of the Mississippi River, Louisiana.

This study will investigate coastal storm damage risk from tidal surges, storm surges, and associated heavy rainfall.

Headwater flooding from rainfall is intensified by tidal events resulting in flood damages to industrial, commercial, and agricultural facilities as well as residential structures.

Objectives

  • Reduce the risk to human life, health, and safety by reducing flood impacts to structures, evacuation routes, and critical infrastructure;
  • Reduce risks to economic impacts due to storm inundation in basin;
  • Increase community resiliency before, during, and after significant tropical rainfall events.

The meeting is set to take place tomorrow, January 10, at the New Orleans District Headquarters, District Assembly Room (DARM), 7400 Leake Avenue, New Orleans.
