The draft includes plans for 13 miles of filtered berm – a ridge made of loose rock meant to slow and filter water.

The Army Corps also recommends reconstruction of pump stations 1 through 7, and the construction of two detention ponds at the levee B tieback area.

A 30-day period of public comment began Monday. A public meeting is scheduled for Oct. 8 at the Case Community Center.
