Wake Me Up Before You Go MR-GO

The MR-GO (Mississippi River - Gulf Outlet) is not very popular these days, In fact, it hasn't been popular for may years. Now residents of New Orleans East and St. Bernard Parish are teaming up to support the closing of the waterway.

MR-GO has always been controversial, it was even blamed for much of the flooding of St. Bernard Parish and the Lower 9th Ward during Hurricane Betsy in 1965. And with a repeat of that flooding from Katrina, MR-GO may finally go.
