Project Description

This project is for engineering and design (including planning, compliance, permitting, surveys, drawings, and other design documents) to fully develop the scope of a shoreline protection project to restore submerged aquatic vegetation. Pending engineering and design results, implementation of a future project could include constructing breakwaters along the shorelines of Lake Cataouatche, Lake Salvador, and Bayou Bardeaux, and adding material where needed to raise the elevation of the existing features to match the elevation of the new construction.
