Abstract: The purpose of the proposed action is to improve hurricane protection on the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal, which is a critical component of the Lake Pontchartrain and Vicinity (LPV) Hurricane Protection Project in Orleans and St. Bernard Parishes, Louisiana. The overall purpose of the project is to provide a comprehensive, integrated protection system that would reduce the imminent and continuing threat to life, health, and property posed by flooding from hurricanes and other tropical storm events. This purpose would be achieved by providing a 100-year level of hurricane protection. In addition, these measures are vital to the recovery of the area and need to be addressed in a timely and comprehensive manner. The term “100-year level of protection,” as it is used throughout this document, refers to a level of protection that reduces the risk of hurricane surge and wave-driven flooding that the New Orleans Metropolitan Area has a 1 percent chance of experiencing each year.
