Flashback: Levees.org installs its first historic plaque

In collaboration with the Lakeview neighborhood of New Orleans, Levees.org installed its first historic plaque at the Fifth Anniversary of the Worst Civil Engineering Disaster in US history.

The location was the 17th Street Canal levee breach site. This breach is considered by experts to be, on its own, the single most damaging breach.

On August 18, 2010, Levees.org’s first historic plaque – vetted and fact checked by the Louisiana Office of Historic Preservation – was unveiled in front of news video cameras and reporters from all over the nation.
