Could Historic Dutch Methods for Mastering Water Save New Orleans?

"HOEK VAN HOLLAND, The Netherlands — Up close is not the best way to see the world’s biggest gate.

Viewed from one end, where a three-story hinge links to a massive steel lattice, the Maeslant storm surge barrier resembles three crane towers toppled across one another. From the opposite end, nearly 280 yards away, it’s an imposing white wall, like a drive-in movie screen stretched the length of 2½ football fields.

And that’s only half of it."

Tristan Baurick reports for the New Orleans Times-Picayune March 6, 2020.
