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:

• City of New Orleans’ Chief Resilience Officer Jeffrey P. Hebert

• New Orleans’ Assistant Inspector General Nadiene Van Dyke

• Urban & Landscape architect J. David Waggonner III

• Loyola College of Law Professor Robert R. M. Verchick

• Urban historian Eric M. Hardy, of the Environment Program, will serve as moderator

as they convene for a discussion about the challenges to comprehensive water management in New Orleans and its environs.

Free parking for guests in West Road Garage
