The purpose of the Southeast Louisiana (SELA) program is to reduce flood damages in the City of New Orleans and surrounding parishes. The program is comprised of three phases. The current status of all Phase One projects can be found online.
The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans has undertaken a multi-year program, the Sewer System Evaluation and Rehabilitation Program (SSERP), to identify and address structural and mechanical deficiencies in the wastewater collection system and to ensure that the system has adequate capacity. Regular meetings are held once each month, to which the public is invited.
