Mississippi Valley Division commanding general Maj. Gen. Diana Holland visited and thanked operators and team members of the Emergency Command and Control Vehicle (ECCV) stationed at Port Allen, Louisiana.
The first blue roof installation occurred on September 8, 2021, in Orleans Parish in response to Hurricane Ida. Operation Blue Roof is a FEMA mission managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The mission aims to provide homeowners in disaster areas with fiber-reinforced sheeting to cover their damaged roofs until permanent repairs are made. This is a free service to homeowners.
USACE has received a $25 million FEMA mission assignment to conduct the recovery unwatering mission in South Louisiana following Hurricane Ida. Pumps have been deployed to Kraemer in LaFourche Parish and Lafitte in Jefferson Parish. In lower Plaquemines Parish, USACE will undertake controlled engineered cuts in the levees to promote drainage. Understanding that we remain in hurricane season, these sections can be closed in advance of a pending storm. USACE has the flexibility and capability under the existing unwatering mission to include additional areas should the need arise.
The first Hurricane Ida FEMA Emergency Generator installed August 31, 2021, supporting the power requirements of the Southeast Louisiana Veterans Home, a 156 bed facility, in Reserve, Louisiana. A 13-member "Power Team" from the Memphis District is supporting the FEMA temporary emergency power mission.

MS RIVER MAINLINE LEVEES SEIS II

The USACE is preparing a supplemental environmental impact statement to address the impacts associated with the construction of remaining authorized work on the Mississippi River Mainline Levees (MRL) feature of the Mississippi River & Tributaries (MR&T) project.  The MRL is one of the major features of the MR&T Project used to provide comprehensive flood damage control, protection, and risk reduction from the Project Design Flood in the alluvial valley beginning at Cape Girardeau, Missouri to the Head of Passes, Louisiana.
