Engineers to Test Flood Defenses In New Orleans - washingtonpost.com

Engineers to Test Flood Defenses In New Orleans - washingtonpost.com
Let's just say that if the ACOE had ever tested this 'system in name only' BEFORE it failed, those who lived behind it might have had material knowledge about their safety. Certainly, they could not have conjured a hurricane, but they could have tested this design with real live pumped water. We know, and we have to remind the rest of the digital world, that it was not the wind, the tides, the waves, etc. that caused the walls to fail, it was simply the weight of the water they were supposed to contain. Geniuses. Absolute Geniuses.
