New Orleans is recalibrating its water management strategies. Stimulated by a thoughtful reevaluation by architect David Waggonner of the roles water may play in local resilience, emphasis is shifting from removing water from the city to retaining water and adjusting to its heretofore unseen benefits. Discussion will enumerate new pathways to better living with water as a friend and not an enemy.
