The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will hold a meeting Thursday to discuss recent flooding on Grandlake Boulevard in Kenner that residents blame on a faulty floodwall.
Grandlake runs parallel to the West Return Floodwall, which is meant to reduce the risk of storm surge-related flooding for businesses and homes in the area.
Ever since the Corps built the wall, residents have complained that rain runs off it and floods nearby homes.
The meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. Thursday in Room 201 of the Orleans Levee District building at 6920 Franklin Ave.
The Corps will discuss the recent flooding, how it relates to Kenner’s flood protection infrastructure and possible solutions to the problem.
