Abstract
In conjunction with the Presidents Council on Integrity and Efficiency as part of its examination of relief efforts provided by the Federal Government in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. We conducted this evaluation to assess the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPAs) and Louisiana's efforts to ensure that the public was provided with safe drinking water after Katrina. On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina, a Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale, devastated parts of Louisiana and rendered many drinking water systems inoperable. By August 31, 2005, the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals issued boil order advisories for 15 parishes affected by the hurricane.
