Just released, the Greater New Orleans Urban Water Plan addresses groundwater and stormwater as critical factors in shaping a safe, livable and beautiful city. Administered by GNO, Inc., the $2.5 million plan was funded by the Louisiana Office of Community Development with New Orleans' Waggonner and Ball leading a team of local and international water management experts to develop this innovative plan.

Of special interest to CSED and the Lower 9th Ward Community is a section in the plan titled "Claiborne to Inner Harbor", which addresses the challenges, opportunities and vision of creating a new waterfront identity along the Industrial Canal along with a Wetland Restoration Park in Bayou Bienvenue.
