May 2016 - December 2016Evaluation of the buildings built on the levee in PEN 2 concludes

A risk-based evaluation of the “structural encroachments” – e.g. anything that is built into or on top of a levee – is completed in PEN 2. Fortunately,  no high-risk encroachments are found and the US Army Corps of Engineers issues “legacy encroachment” standing for all existing structures that are built on the levees.

In December of 2016, LRC holds an open house to inform the residents of PEN 2 of the findings.
