The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recently announced that it will allocate $1,141,394 to restore the Lake Campus to its pre-disaster condition.
Following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, FEMA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers constructed temporary facilities on the Lake Campus. The newly allocated money will be used to repair damages caused by the installation and subsequent removal of those facilities.
The scope of work includes removing and repaving streets and parking lots, and repairing a collapsed drain line. Other work involves removing electrical poles used to provide power to the temporary facilities, and disposing concrete block supports.
