There's a flood risk right now. Our pump system has no backup power.

Yesterday's rain was intense, and there's more coming through the night and tomorrow morning. That brings the risk of flooding.

The S&WB is raising the alarm about the lack of backup power for the city's drainage system.

Take Action
“We are in a fragile state, and we have minimal – if at all – backup to what we have currently in the minimal arsenal to combat drainage in heavy events. It’s very, very minimal. It’s not a panic situation, but it’s a concerning and alarming situation to be just as blunt as I can be.”
- S&WB Executive Director Ghassan Korban
New Orleans needs funding from the state to update the outdated power supply for its drainage pumps. You can help by writing to your legislators and telling them stand up for New Orleans.

This storm is highlighting a crucial problem that impacts the safety of all our city's residents. Take action now to help.
