Flood mitigation meeting

Allow me to take off my drainage advocate hat for a bit and put on my flood mitigation hat...

I've got a meeting announcement:

Broadmoor flood mitigation study unveiling
UNO's Center for Hazards Assessment, Response, and Technology (CHART) will present findings of its area study of flood mitigation and repetitive flood losses in Broadmoor. The study is the only of its kind to be conducted in New Orleans. The public is invited to review the draft report, comment, and discuss the findings with the study authors and representatives from FEMA.

Where: St. Mathais Church, 4230 South Broad St.
When: 6:30 PM, Monday, November 6, 2006

If you'd like to take a look at what an "area study" looks like, you examine one that CHART did earlier this year for the Maplewood subdivision on the west bank of Jefferson Parish. The report can be found here:


  • Matt,
    I was really interested to see the mitigation report but I couldn't make the meeting. Are you planning to publish it? Thanks.
