The project facilities form one of the largest drainage pumping systems in the world and can operate continuously and independently during major hurricane events. The City of New Orleans was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. In response, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers embarked on the $14.6 billion Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction system to repair the damage and improve resiliency for the city and surrounding communities.
