Surge Protection

The US Army Corps of Engineers is building a huge surge protection wall around St. Bernard Parish. They are building it in record time. They have mostly admitted wrongdoing and accepted blame for the surge and levee failures that inundated New Orleans and St. Bernard Parish during and after Hurricane Katrina. Closure of the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (MRGO) and building this wall, combined with renewal of destroyed wetlands all around the area, will help to safeguard the vulnerable wards and parishes from tragedy and disaster again.
