GenWalsh



Corps service competition general’s biggest concern When it comes to flood threats or navigation needs, Brigadier Gen. Michael J. Walsh is the man you want on your side. Walsh heads the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ largest division with more than 2,500 employees under his command. Wednesday, he shared his insights and concerns with members of the Ports Association of Louisiana attending their 26th annual convention that concluded this morning with a board meeting at the Holiday Inn. The Corps’ Vicksburg-based Mississippi Valley Division not only oversees navigation and flood control issues in the lower reaches of the system, it also has jurisdiction in the far northern regions of the U.S. where rampant flooding was an issue in Fargo, N.D., earlier this year. Walsh said the Corps’ mission is to provide flood control, ensure navigable waterways and protect the ecosystem of the nation’s rivers.

Four U.S. Coast Guard patrol boats from other areas were docked at the Port of Morgan City facility on Youngs Road during Hurricane Ike. Two of the vessels were from the Galveston, Texas, and Corpus Christi, Texas, area and the other two are normally stationed in western Louisiana. The Port of Morgan City again served as a “safe haven” during the recent storms while neighboring ports in Fourchon and Iberia were inundated by the tidal flooding.
