PRESS CONFERENCE Wed Apr 8 at 11:30am Lakeview Harbor Restaurant

When: Wed Apr 8, 2009 at 11:30am
Where: Lakeview Harbor Restaurant, 911 Harrison Ave, New Orleans
Why: Announcement and revelation of new information

Eighteen months ago, Dr. Ray Seed, co-chair of the Independent Levee Investigation Team filed a 42-page ethics complaint against members of the American Society of Civil Engineers ASCE). He detailed a sordid tale – an early intentional plan by the Corps of Engineers to hide their mistakes in the New Orleans flooding after Katrina and to intimidate anyone who tried to intervene.

All of this was done with the help and the complicity of some at the ASCE, according to Dr. Seed.

In response, the ASCE formed an internal committee to look into Dr. Seed’s allegations.  Those results were released yesterday, and no ethics charges were leveled at any of the executives Dr. Seed cited.

At our press conference, we will respond to this news. We will also present never before disclosed information. We will explain at the press event why we have not released this information sooner.

Thank you,
