What's Wrong with the Atchafalaya Levee?

On a recent expedition to the Atchafalaya levee, we discovered some issues with the iconic flood control structure.IMG 6863

A 700 foot section of the western Atchafalaya levee is showing signs of failure, about 1.5 miles north of the I-10 bridge. The levee appears to be suffering from a stability failure and a portion is sliding off into the basin. This has been a problem spot, for several years and the levee district has made repairs, already.
