The slabs commemorate how high the water rose in 2005, reaching the I-10 overhead span where it crosses over Highway 603.

Blink and you miss it during the day -- at night it's lit up. Right at the intersection of I-10 and Hwy 43. [Rose, 11/02/2015]

We saw this and it is very sobering to imagine water being that high that far inland.

High water monument.

Hurricane Katrina Flood Marker

Concrete slab off of I-10E, exit 13 showing water level after Katrina. It's right next to the overpass.

[Racheal, 01/06/2013]

There are two monuments, one on each side of the interstate. In 2011, the local papers reported that the town council griped to the state about the monument (which forever immortalizes how high water gets in a bad hurricane). It might discourage sought-after business development near the interchange.
