Eight years ago, Hurricane Katrina stormed through Louisiana and dumped tens of billions of gallons of water into the city as a result of numerous levee failures. The scale of this disaster was unparalleled. Officials and citizens from all over worked hard to rebuild a city that stood for nearly three centuries as a proud cornerstone of the South, and the lessons learned through this catastrophic event have informed new protocols and systems as officials diligently work on keeping the city safe.
The Orleans Levee District is in charge of constructing, operating, and maintaining the Mississippi River and Hurricane Protection Flood Control System. It is tasked with the responsibility of maintaining 104.8 miles of levees and floodwalls, 200 floodgates, 103 flood valves, and two flood control structures.
Its previous maintenance management system could not effectively track the maintenance of equipment and flood control structures, process work orders, or provide reliable and accurate maintenance and financial data so the decision was made to move ahead with the implementation of a best-of-breed Computerised Maintenance Management Software (CMMS).
After evaluating the top CMMS vendors, Orleans Levee District decided on Real Asset Management’s maintenance software. The reliability and versatility of the system, as well as the reasonable initial investment and recurring expenses were key deciding factors. RAM's CMMS will be used to manage the maintenance of all the levees and flood control structures for the city, as well as a combination of over 300 vehicles and mobile equipment items used to maintain the levees and flood structures. Real Asset Management could not be more proud to be part of preserving The Big Easy.
