Engineers to be used in conjunction with water pumping operations previously made
possible by New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board (SWBNO). The Louisiana
Department of Agriculture and Forestry (LDAF) has also assisted by supplying
excavation equipment being used to dig trenches facilitating water flow through the area
