In response to the devastation caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, the U.S. Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District implemented Alternative Arrangements on  March 13, 2007, under the provisions of the Council of Environmental Quality Regulations for Implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (40 CFR 1506.11). This process was implemented in order to expeditiously complete environmental analysis for any changes to the authorized system and the 100-year level of the Greater New Orleans Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction System, formerly known as the Hurricane Protection System, which was authorized and funded by Congress and the Administration.
