Corps pulls 17th Street floodwall sections

Apparently the floodwalls were built according to specifications, so that means the flaw was in the design. And the Corpse of Engineers did that part. Too bad they are exempt from liability. Nevertheless, they collected evidence to defend themselves if criminal charges are filed.

Times Picayune:
"On Monday, corps workers drilled a foot-long circular core from the upper corner of the first wall section, marked it and put it in an evidence bag for possible use in future civil or criminal legal cases.

The corps workers then used a large circular saw to cut a 4-by-4-foot square out of the wall section, which also was marked as evidence."
