Colonel Wagenaar Visits Port

july282006(GALLIANO, LA, JULY 28, 2006) – On Tuesday, the Port Commission discussed a number of issues and provided a tour of Port Fourchon to Colonel Wagenaar, head of the New Orleans District Corps of Engineers.

According to Port Director Ted Falgout, “It was great to have the Colonel take time from his busy schedule to visit the Port and share our views on issues such as future port development, navigation, and coastal protection.”

“The hurricanes of 2005 and the rebuilding of New Orleans have consumed much of his time and it was great to have the opportunity to have him most of the day to focus on issues important to Lafourche Parish,” continued Falgout.
