The New Orleans Hurricane Protection System: Assessing Pre-Katrina Vulnerability and Improving Mitigation and Preparedness
can be improved in the future at the authorized level of protection.
The NAE/NRC committee will issue five reports:
a preliminary, letter report that comments on the adequacy of the nature of the data being collected by the IPET and ASCE teams (due in February 2006);
an interim report that represents the midpoint of the committee’s evaluation and project (due June 1, 2006);
a report that reviews the IPET June 1, 2006 draft final report (due in September 2006);
a report that reviews the IPET draft “Volume VIII” on Engineering and Operational Risk and Reliability Analysis; and,
a final, comprehensive report that summarizes the committee’s evaluation of the IPET final report.
The timeline for these five NAE/NRC reports conforms with plans regarding IPET report progress. The first two NRC/NAE reports will be drafted and issued following the review and evaluation of the IPET 30% and 60% completion reports, respectively. The third NAE/NRC report will review the IPET draft report (which was issued on June 1, 2006). The fourth NAE/NRC report will review the IPET Volume VIII on Risk and Reliability Analysis. The fifth NAE/NRC report will review the IPET final report.
