  1. Flooding is the number one reason why I moved in April. The city is below sea level so it’s supposed to flood there. What do you expect ?

  2. I thought his honor, former mayor, Mary Landrieu's brother, was dealing with the drainage problem? I guess the statues are at it again.

    Why is it flooding? Let's see. The drainage pipes in the city are how old? I believe they're made of cast iron. Could it be the pipes are cracking and collapsing causing the problem? Think about it. In some of the older(est) parts of the city the flooding is systemically worse reaching into the outer environs. Don't hold your breath on "studies" and "action plans" It's all bureaucratic lip service.
