How To: Level a levee

Looking westbound on Loop Road, straight ahead ...

With Paces dike on the left, going south.

Houses were the plan
for the area enclosed
within the dike

Or rather, the remnant of Paces Dike.

Its levee has since been pushed back into the canal.

Fortunately its still trees!

Can you see Loop Road
in the distance?

Or in other words, back to level ground.

The bottom photo shows the flattened levee's southern perimeter, looking north.
