Pontilly Neighborhood Stormwater Network


The Pontilly Neighborhood Stormwater Network project will reduce flood risk and beautify green spaces in the Pontchartrain Park and Gentilly Woods neighborhoods through the construction of green infrastructure strategies. The project will combine improvements to the Dwyer Canal with a network of interventions along streets, in alleyways, and within vacant lots designed to slow and store stormwater.

These strategies reduce the burden on the strained drainage system, reduce land subsidence, and improve water quality – all while beautifying the neighborhood.
