Levees at work

What might look like "just a canal,"

Also has a double levee, one on both banks.

This feature has historically funneled water down the side ...

Instead of letting it loose in the middle of the swamp.

Then there's the case of the three-mile levee ...

That pools water to the north.

Now for the good news: Plans are underway to correct the water flow in both spots.
