Details on 7/22/17 and 8/5/17 New Orleans floods

For those of you here looking for details about the information I unearthed using the pump station logs for the July 22, 2017 and August 5, 2017 New Orleans floods, I have posted them to Facebook.

I'm not very good at Facebook. I cannot even figure out what my own web address is. So here are the direct links for the August 5th flood posts:

Details on Lakeview station 12 on August 5, 2017
Details on Mid-City, French Quarter, Treme, and Lakeview station 3 on August 5, 2017
Details on Mid-City, Lakeview South, and City Park-area station 7 on August 5, 2017
Details on Mid-City, French Quarter, CBD, and Mid-City station 2 on August 5, 2017

And here's the links to the posts about the July 22nd floods:

  • The recent flooding problems was mostly due to a lack of maintenance and repairs on the 25 Hz generation than due to problems with the pumps.

    The denials from Central was mostly due to lack of 25 Hz generation.

    It is time to modernize the system. Eliminate the old and inefficient steam turbines. Eliminate the ancient 25 Hz generators. Eliminate the 25 Hz feeders. Add electronics to produce 25 Hz power from 60 cycle Entergy power. Add emergency diesel generators at each pumping plant.
