WHO: Colonel Lewis Setliff, III, 48th district engineer for the US Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District. He was selected to command Task Force Guardian, the team charged with restoring the city's flood and hurricane protection system to pre-storm levels. WHAT: Colonel Setliff rehashes the massive engineering challenges the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers faced when teams entered the city just days after Hurricane Katrina struck. More than 80 percent of the city was flooded, thousands of people were stranded, and the Corps of Engineers only had months to ensure 220 miles of levees and floodwalls would be intact for the next hurricane season beginning June 1. DETAILS: Colonel Setliff's discussion is captured in a multimedia SolidWorks podcast featuring videos of the flooding during and after the storm and the reconstruction project. WHEN: The podcast is immediately available. WHERE: Visit the SolidWorks Web site at www.solidworks.com/pages/news/MediaPcasts.html
