Joint Finance Committee & Planning, Engineeringand Construction Committee MeetingJanuary 3, 2006
Mr. Young commented that the USACE is looking to investigate what thecanals’ height will be before the S&WB begins pumping. This will be an elevationthat everybody can be satisfied with, and the USACE will either makemodifications to the levee or make no modifications to the levee. Along the entiresystem of levees, the USACE is looking to insure that the Orleans Levee Districtand the S&WB have sufficient space to maintain and inspect the levees.Probably the trees along the 17
Street Canal will be cleared from the levees sothat trucks during inspection can pass through. The Orleans Avenue Canal areais basically cleared. On London the levee toe is basically on the property line oneither side, so the USACE is probably looking to take possibly 10 ft. to 15 ft. ofland in order to allow inspection throughout the area. This is a recommendationfrom the USACE’s forensic group to allow the OLD and S&WB the ability toinspect the levees and keep them functional.
Mrs. Sandra Miller, a Bellaire Street resident, asked for a clarification fromMr. Young concerning what will be done to homes along Bellaire Street. Many ofthe residents gutted their homes but are waiting to see if the USACE would betaking any of the property before they begin renovations.

Mr. Young replied, each levee along the canals will be looked atdifferently. There are different problems such as seepage and stability atdifferent locations and different areas. Representatives from St. Louis, St. Pauland New Orleans and multitudes of
’s are looking at the canals. This is asituation that involves every section of the levee system. The USACE has ideasabout what they want to do in order to have flood protection by June 1.Chairman Saizan asked Mr. Young to explain the process should theUSACE decide to obtain square footage from someone’s property?Mr. Young explained that if the USACE deems its necessary for buildinglarger breach closures, the USACE would go out with plans and specs foradvertisement. During that time, the USACE will ask the Mayor to assist inobtaining property. \Basically, it is taking the property and negotiating at a latertime in order for the USACE to continue with their schedule. It is based on whatfootprint is needed for the levee, T-Wall or whatever type of flood protection willbe obtained. Most cases, the USACE acquire additional land so that they canprovide room for inspection and maintenance.
