Greater New Orleans, Inc. and the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Washington, D.C. developed the Greater New Orleans Urban Water Plan iPad app to tell the public about how the plan will decrease flooding and increase quality of life in Southeast Louisiana.

Developed over a 30-month process in conjunction with a team of Dutch and local experts led by Waggonner and Ball Architects, the Urban Water Plan addresses problems with the region’s water management system in an innovative way that will directly confront the effects of negative effects of storm-water, nuisance street flooding, and damage to roads and other infrastructure regularly impacted by subsidence.

The plan won the American Planning Association’s Environmental Planning Excellence Award during its 2015 conference in Seattle. Watch this short video about the plan:
