Public Health and Environmental Infrastructure
Implications of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita

by James N. Jensen and Pavani Ram

The report is volume three in a series detailing post-Katrina field investigations by the MCEER team. The public health and environment reconnaissance team visited the Gulf Coast from October 17, 2005 to October 22, 2005. The team’s efforts extended from New Orleans to the parishes north of Lake Pontchartrain to the Louisiana-Texas border. The primary study areas were Orleans, Jefferson, St. Tammany, Washington, Calcasieu, and Cameron parishes. The report provides information on the public health
aspects of the site visit and reviews the environmental infrastructure observations.
