The Southwestern Flood Prevention District Council says too much is at stake for any more delays in fixing levees in Metro East.
Les Sterman, the project's supervisor for the Council says the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has so far taken too long in approving plans to work on the levees.
He said their latest plan approval was six months late.
“Essentially we're doing our part," Sterman said. "All we're asking is for the federal agency to do its part in helping us get this project moving.”
