Oregon Public Broadcasting (opb.org) has just issued an important list––9 times the US Army Corps of Engineers miscalculated badly at the expense of taxpayers, wildlife.
Number one on the list is the failure of the levee system in New Orleans.
We find that highly appropriate in light of the horrific loss of life, nearly 1400 people.
We also note that the salt water intrusion crisis in New Orleans was on the list. Levees.org had recently called out the Army Corps for basically standing by and allowing this happen, knowing that the possibility was likely.
Bravo to both the OPB.org and also to ProPublica for producing the article in partnership.
