Ten years ago this weekend, Hurricane Katrina rocked the Gulf Coast and shocked the world when levees broke and flooded one of America’s largest, most historic cities. Despair, courage, compassion and hope were in full display over the days to come.
Veolia employees were on the ground before, during and after the storm putting environmental expertise to work. We were managing wastewater treatment facilities for New Orleans, Kenner, Harahan and other communities – and we continue to do so today! We were also providing environmental services to support area businesses and manufacturers with our expertise in resource recovery, water, energy efficiency, waste and industrial services. And we continue to do this as well on a 24/7 basis.
Watch this somber but inspiring reflection from employees. No words can be written here that match the depth of their experiences and commitment. You’ll hear from employees who were engulfed by floodwaters while managing services to area communities, businesses and industries.
An incredible level of support came from Veolia employees in the days and weeks following Katrina and Hurricane Rita. We encourage you to contact Veolia to find out more about our services.
Whether it’s helping your city, business or organization develop energy efficient microgrids to keep the lights on (we helped clients ensure the delivery of energy during Superstorm Sandy), ensuring water supply to citizens or keeping manufacturing sites operational, Veolia has a long history of proven and efficient solutions.
