Word of the Day: Desiccation
More from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Trinity River floodway report released today
Jim's opted to wait till the a.m. to post concerning the Corps' report, but his quick take: "The worse gets worser." Sam's also got priceless video coming early Thursday. Which gives everyone time to get their head around these docs. So, speaking of which, the last of the documents worth a peek are posted after the jump: a table from the Corps titled "LEVEE SAFETY ISSUES & RECOMMENDATIONS," for those who like their reading easy and color-coded; and a Monday missive from Dr. Monte Pearson of the Corps' Geotechnical Agency Technical Review Team in which he concurs with the report's assessment concerning the Trinity River levees' "state of decay."
