re: Anyone know what this construction project is on the NorthShore of lake Ponchatrain? - man in the stadium on 10/14/17 at 6:42 am
The Army Corps filled it in as a wetland creation project. It was mitigation for the HSDRRS (New Orleans Levee System) activities post Katrina where marsh elsewhere was ruined by expansion of the system footprint....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: NOLA S&WB Debacle Thread.....Heads Roll....but not Mitch...not yet anyway - man in the stadium on 8/8/17 at 9:00 pm
You are correct. Many pumps are on an entirely different electricity grid than the municipal Entergy grid, hence the turbines and power house at the Claiborne plant. In 190whatever 110 volt 60 Hz power hadn't won out yet apparently and most of the old pumps operate on something like 25 Hz power f...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Repairing and Reinforcing Bulkhead - man in the stadium on 7/15/17 at 11:30 pm
Google what a waler beam is. Basically like an 8x8 beam you place on water side of bulkhead. Drill holes every few feet through it and the sheetpile. Run some galvanized steel rods a few feet long bolted on waler side and the tied into something heavy (concrete blocks, piles, etc) buried in your y...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: A beach on Algiers Point? Developer plans a West Bank getaway - man in the stadium on 6/7/17 at 11:06 am
Putting a ton of fill and bulkhead right between a fed levee and fed revetment in one of the sharpest turns in the entire river... For the engineers in here: can you imagine all the global stability shite they will have to go through with the Corps to get a 408 (permit to alter a federal levee) fo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Experts on Coastal Erosion - man in the stadium on 4/26/17 at 11:31 am
not arguing, sorry, should have restated to agree. agree on saltwater, but if we see even the lowest of the recent master plan's RSLR values, it will be moot. I guess one could call it either saltwater intrusion/saltwater inundation, but it is semantics...either way it would all be underwater, re...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Experts on Coastal Erosion - man in the stadium on 4/26/17 at 11:06 am
[quote]Another problem, that few bring up when they discuss sediment diversions, is that the River isn't carrying the sediment loads that it once did due to dams on tributaries upstream and whatnot. So, blowing the levees at a certain point would obviously help, but it wouldn't be some "overnight" m...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

amazon fire tv noob question - man in the stadium on 4/26/17 at 9:19 am
I just plugged in a FireTV last night. No prior experience with one. I was downloading apps, signing in, and amazed at how many have "live" programming along with the on-demand stuff. Question 1: is there a way to see or sort which apps have the "live" feature (even if some really aren't live lik...

re: Why are Coastal "Studies" necessary? - man in the stadium on 4/20/17 at 7:39 am
The Feds would probably get the Coast Guard to seize the dredge. The state already exclusively uses private dredges. To dredge places like Ship Shoal to rebuild Elmer's, NOAA/BOEMER had the state hire a trawler to drive in front of the dredge so that no sea turtles would be sucked up. They had to pr...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Why are Coastal "Studies" necessary? - man in the stadium on 4/19/17 at 11:24 pm
I work in this field. There are too many studies. However, the Times Pic got the article wrong: that isn't a 90mil study. It's 90mil to study and build. As others have said, some things require significant study to ensure sufficient benefits are achieved. Another sad reason a lot of shite is stud...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: The Baton Rouge Water Campus - man in the stadium on 3/11/17 at 11:21 pm
I am rooting for this development, but I have dim hopes for the end result being what is envisioned or intended. The reason being is that the price per sf numbers in rent being tossed around for private consultants are ludicrous: 5, 10+ dollars per sf more than present market value for prime class ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Running experts. Question about cadence - man in the stadium on 2/22/17 at 10:21 pm
I think you are overthinking this, but to each his own. I used to run at a pretty high level and we never looked at stats like this. Just time. Humans will undoubtedly have to breath more and harder when increasing exertion, so don't overthink that portion. What kind of training are you doing? Ju...
