Coastal News Roundup: A New River Model, And The Wild West Of Levees

Jul 28, 2017

Every Friday we sit down with coastal reporters at Nola.com/The Times-Picayune to recap the week's coastal news.

This week on the Coastal News Roundup, WWNO's Travis Lux chats with Nola.com/The Times-Picayune's Sara Sneath. They talk about a big, new model of the Mississippi River at LSU, then head to Vermillion Parish for a case study on what can happen in the absence of a comprehensive levee system.

Support for the Coastal Desk comes from the Walton Family Foundation, the Coypu Foundation, the Greater New Orleans Foundation, and local listeners.
