Work In Progress
The RoadWork mapping application is a collaboration between the Department of Public Works and the Sewerage & Water Board of New Orleans. The goal in creating this mapping application is to inform citizens about past, current, and future road work projects that affect their daily lives.
Green Infrastructure
The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans is initiating the use of Green Infrastructure (GI) as an approach to maintain healthy waters, provide multiple environmental benefits, and support sustainable communities in New Orleans. GI is low impact development practice that can help avoid stormwater quality degradation, as well as reduce flooding potential by using vegetation and soil to manage rainwater where it falls.
SELA Drainage Projects
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 Sewer System Evaluation and Rehabilitation Program (SSERP)
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.
Permanent Canal Closures & Pumps (PCCP)
The Permanent Canal Closures & Pumps (PCCP) will provide a permanent and more sustainable measure for reducing the risk of a 100-year level storm surge entering the outfall canals.
Water Line Replacement Project (WLRP)
The intent of the FEMA-Funded Water Line Replacement Program is to restore the City's water distribution system. This is part of a larger City-wide, multi-year infrastructure repair/recovery effort funded by FEMA. A significant level of planning and coordination between DPW, SWBNO, GOHSEP and FEMA is necessary to ensure the City is maximizing available funding.
