The Great Wall Of Louisiana
The Great Wall Of Louisiana
The IHNC Lake Borgne Surge Barrier also called the Great Wall of Louisiana is a storm surge barrier constructed near the confluence of and across the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet near New Orleans. The barrier runs generally north-south from a point just east of Michoud Canal on the north bank of the GIWW and just south of the existing Bayou Bienvenue flood control structure. Navigation gates where the barrier crosses the GIWW and Bayou Bienvenue reduce the risk of storm surge coming from Lake Borgne and/or the Gulf of Mexico. Another navigation gate (Seabrook Floodgate) has been constructed in the Seabrook vicinity where the IHNC meets Lake Pontchartrain to block a storm surge from entering the IHNC from the Lake.

‘Designed to stop 44 million gallons of water.’ Didn’t that flash flood in
louisiana just drop 7 trillion gallons?!
Once again it’s a failure look happen for the second time disasters Mother
Nature strikes again can’t fuck with Mother Nature lol..They’re should
return some of the money disgraceful against human nature what a fucking
shame bunch of greedy company.
so many critics, so few brain cells. fortunately, for all of the idiots
that are sitting on their butts, in an air conditioned environment, typing
on a computer (electricity, chips, code, internet) there are engineers to
design and build all this stuff so, your toilet flushes away all of the
crap you produce so you don’t die in your own excrement. say thank you
What a scuzzy dump and a waste of money! Building a city below sea level
stupid as the imbreds that live there
Men power, let’s do it, I love you all brave men of AMERICA.
Trump will be like, lets build a wall like this!
Oh foolish builders of a failing Babylon…
just give it all back to the egrets and gators and build where man is
supposed to live….will this give nature another last laugh now?
Does this Lake Borgne surge barrier slow the natural ebb and flow of tide
waters from Lake Pontchartrain? I do not see the precise location on Google
Maps satellite images. I must be looking in the wrong place.
That soil in the NOLA area outside of Mississippi River alluvial plain area
(hard yellow clay and high $ properties) is largely organic on top with
mucky blue clay below. That organic stuff just rots away and subsides
continuously. Folks purchase river-sand on trucks to replace the
subsidence. That’s right… we are built on recovered tide water swamp
land. Crazy right?
I’d like to do my sidewalks in that pervious-crete. Jefferson Parish
screwed up the elevations on post (LOOOONG POST, like 2015) Katrina street
repairs (corner ADAAG ramps) and made a water trap in front of my home.
They don’t have any plans on fixing it either. The contractor was the “Low
Bidder” of course…I don’t think they knew how to pull string lines
properly and I saw absolutely NO transit levels.
As of the Great Louisiana Flood of 2016 (and the Hurricane Isaac flooding)
the NOLA, St. Bernard, and East Bank Jefferson Parishes may actually be
more flood resistant than the areas outside of our levee (and seriously BIG
pumped drainage) protection area even though we are in the “Bowl”. That’s
Absolutely amazing! Everybody should watch engineering shows like this from
time to time. It is the perfect remainder on how smart we are, and how we
have the ability to design and build things that will protect us, and the
inspiration to continue on. Thank God for these guys & the brilliant minds
who create them. The homes are so inspirational as well, & the dedication
and courage it takes to be together! Great video!
august 26, 2016….I think they need to go back to the drawing boawahd!!
Talk about closing the barn door after the horse is out!
From now on we’re going to see an employment uptick while armies of
engineers attempt to hold the Oceans and the Water Table back from where it
wants to be naturally. NYC has another multi billion dollar bandaid. Good
luck, you’ll be needing it just to justify the cost. All that money should
be spent, moving the city. You’re going to have to one day anyway. Long
term- expensive. Short term and more expensive?
so I guess you tell a lie enough it becomes truth
So, at 28:38 we find the real reason for all this——-should have guessed
it, OIL!!!! A half hour of feel good bullshit and lies, like it’s all for
the people!! To sum it up, if this port was not here then these people
would be forgotten.
Some people on here are to busy putting down the state and people of
Louisiana ..While these guys putting in wooden pilings have very little to
none PPE.These guys had no hard hats on, no safety vest on, no safety
glasses.Their lucky OSHA never popped up on their work site.If osha did see
this they would have shut the project down.So no one wants to put down guys
working unsafe for the whole world to see?
Why aren’t the concrete caps on the wall made of the absorbant concrete?
such a message or resiliance
might as well build one around baton rouge and surrounding areas now we jus
Is this project completed?
They fucked up. This wall is the reason everything is flooding

If that guy came into my construction site and my boss didn’t tell me there
would be some jackass asking the most retarded questions i’d fucking leave.
Or make it so the parts with me in it aren’t usable because of the the “Are
you fucking kidding me, yeah no shit” parts
design bij a dutch man , the only counttry to not flood , while beeing
lower than the sea
the dutch did it before it was cool
Glad i live about 600 m about Sealevel 🙂 No chance to get a Flood here
Can’t we send all these water to Drought areas or something?? xD
No bedrock. That’ll work…
I think it’s a waste of time and effort also money. Hurricane Rita made
land fall in southwest Louisiana just after Katrina made land fall around
Waveland Miss. Towns like Cameron and Grand Chenier, Intracoastal City had
30 ft tidal surges and towns 180 miles to the East were inundated with 20
1 two mile or 20 mile barrier is not gonna help the NO area. There is too
much marsh around that area plus the all the lakes around there. Lafitte is
right below NOLA and there is nothing below there to stop surges. Barataria
bay and Chandeleur sound will send all that water there ~!~!
LOL, lets build a wall to stop nature… OR, lets not live in a place that
is going to get fucking washed away/destroyed AGAIN, eventually, because it
will…Just like the idiots that build their homes RIGHT ON the beach then
wonder why “God” took their home away from them as it gets destroyed.Sorry
but common sense has to prevail in certain cases and this seems silly and a
huge waste of resources.
Hundreds of Irish immigrants died filling them swamps in New Orleans, no
monuments, no plaques, no fucks are given about them, people try to say
slaves built the south, but they were worth to much to risk in such
backbreaking breaking, deadly labor that filling mosquito infested swamps
that was filled with your malaria, yellow fever, etc back then, all pretty
much a death sentence back then, a Irish laborer dies, the next boat
docking had ten to replace him
