Save the Date: Upcoming Meetings on the Army Corps’ recommendations for our levees

The US Army Corps of Engineers will share their tentative plans to make our local levee system more reliable and resilient in January

We’ll let you know as soon as the draft report has been released. In the meantime, please save the date for one of these upcoming community meetings. Join the Corps to hear about, discuss, and give feedback on the plan on:
