New Orleans receives about 64 inches of rain each year, straining the city’s drainage pumps, and causing repeated urban street flooding, land subsidence, and high costs for the City, homeowners, and businesses alike. Changes to the City’s Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO) require the majority of developers and property owners of new commercial construction and owners of large multiunit residential properties to contain the first inch and a quarter of rainfall at each rain event.
