The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a $64.9 million contract to Chapel Hill LLC for clay needed to complete levees in eastern New Orleans, which was heavily damaged by flooding from Hurricane Katrina in August 2005.

The corps said the levees required a specific type of clay to prevent seepage.

Chapel Hill has operations in Louisiana and Mississippi.
