Exquisite Corps: To Build a Levee, New York Must Take the Lead~A look at the science of storm surge protection suggests that Bloomberg, despite his own engineering background, is perhaps not all that well versed in the work that has been done in the field. Robert G. Bea is an engineer with a deep background in storm water protections and a professor emeritus at the University of California at Berkeley (as well as an Army Corps of Engineers vet). Asked if, indeed, it’s technological possible to protect New York City through some sort of levee system, Bea responds without hesitation.
“The answer is, for sure, yes.” Bea points to the Dutch Delta Works system of dams, dikes and levees that has been much in the news of late. “They sit on the same damn ocean that you do,” he says. (I’m in Brooklyn.) “That Atlantic is a real damn kick-in-the-bum piece of water.”
