LATEST NEWS AND ACTIONS


THIS IS AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT GETTING STORM SURGE
PROTECTION FOR OUR AREA!!

 

Received this from Eden Isle Homeowners Association

 

Storm Surge Protection is in Your Hands…Act Now!

 

For the last seven years, the Eden Isles Homeowners Associations’ Flood Control Committee has been working on storm surge protection for the Lake Pontchartrain basin.  The best chance to get protection is to prove Corps’ projects on the south shore have increased the storm surge risks to the north shore.  That would force the Corps into mitigation and provide protection quickly at their expense.

 

We now have videos, in the Corps’ own words that expose the following:

  1. Corps’ models are not valid; the Corps only modeled 40% of their structures.  The Corps admits that if their structures cause harm they have to mitigate that damage.  http://youtu.be/PkmatvfMIRk

 

  1. Corps admits that structures at the Rigolets and Chef Pass would cause little impact to Mississippi.  http://youtu.be/_GWomkLyM30

 

  1. Does the Corps need additional authority to protect the lake basin?  You decide.  http://youtu.be/2uZuwC-Ymsk

 

  1. Corps admits they simply gave up on building structures at the Rigolets and Chef.  http://youtu.be/XnwVLkmY4sk

 

THIS IS WHERE WE COME IN: ******* 

 

Please contact your congressman and demand the Corps revise their models to evaluate 100% of their structures for impact to the north shore and act to protect the lake basin.

 

Nothing is more important to our community than storm surge protection, so please step up and forward the videos and contact you congressman concerning the Corps’ invalid models.

 

Thank You
