order a hard copy | $25.00

Public Health and Environmental Infrastructure Implications of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita by James N. Jensen and Pavani Ram is volume three in a series detailing post-Katrina field investigations organized by MCEER. The public health and environment 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 and reviews the environmental infrastructure observations.
