The Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a $23.8 million contract for installation of equipment related to the Harahan pump-to-river flood control project.
The work is part of the Southeast Louisiana Urban Flood Damage Risk Reduction Project.
Army Corps officials say the work is designed to reduce the risk of damage from a storm that drops about 9 inches of rain over a 24-hour period.
The contract was awarded to Conti Enterprises Inc. and calls for installing roughly 5,000 feet of 84-inch diameter pipes in the Jefferson Parish community.
The work is expected to be completed in late 2016.
