To our devoted supporters:
Over 250 supporters signed our letter to the local levee authority – sent Mon June 4 – demanding that levee inspection ratings and their meaning be made readily available to the public.
The Levee Authority East responded to our letter by claiming we made untrue statements in the letter. Of course this is nonsense and Levees.org stands by all its statements.
(Columnist James Gill did a story about how we initially obtained the inspections ratings data in 2017 by filing a Freedom of Information request with the Army Corps of Engineers. See Mr. Gill’s story here.)
The bottom line is the letter worked. The Levee Authority made the ratings available on Mon June 4 by posting the Army Corps’ levee inspections ratings for the past two years – with the Authority’s response – on its website.
This is further evidence that your support is generating results.
