The Port of New Orleans wants the city to change the official land use for two properties along the Intracoastal Canal so it can develop them. Environmental groups says the wetlands help prevent flooding and act as backup protection against storm surge. The Port says they are practically worthless because they lie behind levees and a storm surge barrier. This photo, taken by one of the groups opposing the change, shows a portion of the 'Paris' property, which lies on the south side of the canal.
