Life by the Drop: A Forum on Water Management in NOLA

New Orleanians are frequently reminded of the vulnerability of the water systems upon which their health and safety depend.  Coastal erosion, inoperable drainage and power generation equipment, and the potential for lead exposure are sobering reminders that the capricious paths of hurricanes Harvey and Irma are no substitute for infrastructural rehabilitation and administrative reform.

Please join the City of New Orleans’ Inspector General Ed Quatrevaux, its Chief Resilience Officer Jeff Hebert as well as landscape architect David Waggonner and Loyola Law School professor Robert Verchick as they convene for a moderated discussion about the challenges to comprehensive water management in New Orleans and its environs. Urban historian Eric M. Hardy, of the Environment Program at Loyola University, will serve as moderator.

Sponsors include the Environment Program and the Center for the Study of New Orleans at Loyola University New Orleans.
