Rethinking Water Management

Some Louisiana government officials, including
the ex-governor, took a few trips over to the Netherlands to
“research” how the Dutch spent billions of dollars to protect themselves from the water. When they returned, they were quick to ask the federal government for their own billions, but failed to disclose how the Dutch are now rethinking their water management. The Dutch have decided that it is better to live in harmony with the sea, instead of fighting her with large levees and gates. This
is the foundation that New Orleans was built on (Notice how the older parts did not flood), and it is something that deserves another look. More info located in this NY Times article:
