when exactly did the breach occur? <unsigned>

Is it possible for someone more versed on the subject to explain how the lack of proper constuction affects the Canal? Frenzberrie 04:04, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

There doesn't seem to be a street named 17th Street. Has it been renamed? --SPUI (T - C - RFC) 17:22, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

  • I think it was a 19th century name for what is what is now Palmetto Street. Infrogmation (talk) 00:26, 25 September 2010 (UTC)


Why does Bucktown, LA redirect here? Bucktown is mentioned in this article, but it predates the canal and has a significance other than being next to the canal. Ben (talk) 20:50, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Apparently because there was no article about Bucktown, Louisiana, and User:Winstonho0805 created a redirect to here. Feel free to change the redirect into actual article if you have enough info about Bucktown to do so. Infrogmation (talk) 00:26, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

Info and ref removal[edit]

I removed the following because it was a copy/past with a month and year inserted. If someone else wishes to look at it that is fine otherwise I will look into the information--relevance--and the reference later:

The Army Corps of Engineers' district commander in New Orleans in October 2010 approved an environmental document Thursday that green lights the agency's plan to shore up faulty floodwalls and levees on the 17th Street Canal.[1]. Otr500 (talk) 13:28, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
