Integrated Water Resource Managment

The Greater New Orleans Urban Water Plan is a resiliency planning study to develop sustainable strategies for managing the water resources of St. Bernard and the East Banks of Jefferson and Orleans Parishes. The project addresses three basic issues: flooding caused by heavy rainfall, subsidence caused by the pumping of stormwater, and wasted water assets. The project was administered by Greater New Orleans, Inc. (GNO, Inc.).
