US Army Corps awards New Orleans pump station contract

The 33 month contract includes building a new pump station with a pumping capacity of approximately 1000 cubic feet per second in place of the existing Wilkinson Canal Pump Station and constructing fronting protection features to reduce the effects of storm surge on the pump station during a tropical event.

This will bring the Wilkinson Canal Pump Station into compliance with new standards and should be completed in spring 2016.
