Official Opening of the Spillway - May 9, 2011

Bonnet Carre' Spillway - Louisiana

Workers begin pulling out the "needles" in the structure to allow River water, on left, to flow into the Bonnet Carre' Spillway and eventually into Lake Pontchartrain.
The gauge at the Bonnet Carre' at opening was 22.2 feet.
