Snlag resolution was adopted:
e Whereas, The Kempe Levee on the

this Levee District, is an emubankenut
of great size and importance, prevent

menso volume of its flood waters, and
the dvertlow of a large and productive
area in this and other levee districts;
Whereas, During the past thirty
years the constant erosion of the adja
cent river banks has forced the levee
line back a distance of nearly two miles,
and constantly into lower ground, se
that the maintainance of an etlictent
levee in this locality, with the renewal
of levee lines which have caved into the
rtver, lhas, within this period, involved
an expenditure exeeeding $1,000,000;
Whereas, Tile caving of the river
bank in the Kempe bend continues to
menace the integrity of the present large
and costly levee line built there by the
Uniled States;
Therefore, Be it (resolved by the
1 Board of Levee Commissioners for the
Fifth Louisiana Levee District;
1st-That we respectfully urge upon
the Mississippi River Commission the
importance of andertaking the revet.

bend, in time to prevent the destruction
of the existing levee line. or the neces
sity for its renewal, which renewal, on
account of the low land any new loca
tion must traverse, can only be made a
greater cost than ever before, and
with a probably less elfficient embank.
2id-That the secretary of this board
be directed to transmit copies of this
preamble and resolution to the Presi
degt and members of the Mississippi
River Commission.
