Third Report of the NAE/NRC Committee on
New Orleans Regional Hurricane Protection Projects
This is the third report from a committee reviewing the work of the Interagency Performance Evaluation Task Force, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-led group studying why New Orleans' hurricane-protection system failed during Katrina and how it can be strengthened to avoid similar disasters in the future.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on October 25, 2006 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
