The drainage system of New Orleans severely damaged


The official executive of the Sewerage and Water Board called the departure of a critical force-producing turbine “annihilating” to the city’s seepage framework during the board’s meeting.

As we enter the hurricane season, the drainage system of the city is severely affected as the crew has been unsuccessful in restoring the Turbine 5 from the time it was disabled in an explosion.

Ghassan Korban said that the agency could not afford the replacement currently as it is about $20 million. The plan of an additional $10 million using “Fair Share” tourism tax revenues also remains unsuccessful due to the pandemic.

Former Mayor went on spending $31 million to fix the 96-year old turbine instead of purchasing a new one for $16 million during the S&WB-passed opportunity during “Down the Drain” investigation.

Recently, 2.5 inches rainfall and lightning took out the power supply to three central drainage pumps in the Broadmoor neighbourhood and led to the loss of 20 megawatts of self-powered power. In the interim, the board endorsed another $4.8 million support work contract with JEI Solutions, an organization claimed by the sibling of the S&WB account executive.

S&WB extraordinary advice Yolanda Grinstead said Gee Cee recorded a brief controlling request in common court to attempt to hinder the agreement with JEI. Yet, it hadn’t been appropriately served or executed by an adjudicator, so nothing was keeping the board from supporting the agreement.
