Didn't See an appropriate forum for this, so, I'll try here...

The Knost Floodwall

---------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------

My "Ex" and her husband, an engineer rode out Katrina. He decided that there had to be a "Better Way" and took about designing a truly effective floodwall. Had this been in place, I'm convinced that the devestation that struck New Orleans would have been minimized. There is a bituthane coating on the structure...not mentioned in the video. I would be interested in your "take" on this. It does have FEMA and Corp of Engineers approval. Right now, they are trying to get acceptance of the system. It well could be the "Better Mousetrap." Thoughts?

The videos are back. See link for Part One.

An endless infusion of tax money to "save" communities that should have never been built in the first place makes no economic sense. New Orleans is built on a bowl of sinking sand surrounded by water on three sides. Let it go.

Here is a link that might be useful: Knost Floodwall
