A key lesson from the flooding of New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina is that water projects carried out by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have a major impact on public safety and the environment. It is critical to ensure that Corps projects protect the environment and restore the damage that has already been done.

In Coastal Louisiana and all across the country, restoring wetlands, rivers and floodplains is the cheapest and safest way to protect communities and solve water challenges at the same time. I urge you to do all you can in the next Water Resources Development Act to ensure that Corps projects throughout the country restore the environment and protect people.

Reform the Corps to protect people, communities and the environment.

ASK FOR AN 8/29 INVESTIGATION

Thirty-two days after the BP oil spill, President Obama signed an executive order for a bipartisan national commission to investigate the disaster to make certain it never happens again. But after five years, there has still been no comparable investigation of the levee failures that nearly drowned New Orleans and killed over 1,500 people. With 55% of the American population living in counties protected by levees, we clearly need the 8/29 Investigation, named for the day the Federal Hurricane Protection System failed the people of New Orleans.

Sierra Club Action Point


The Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (MRGO) severely damaged nearly 60,000 acres of coastal wetlands that once protected communities across the state of Louisiana. Though the channel is closed, the valuable wetlands have not been restored. The Army Corps of Engineers is currently reviewing public comments for incorporation in the Final Plan for MRGO Ecosystem Restoration.
