Project Description

This planning effort will prepare a strategic restoration plan for the Barataria Basin to focus restoration efforts where injury was greatest. From this Phase I strategic restoration plan (RP #3), Phase II restoration plans, including RP #3.2 will tier project-specific restoration planning. Concurrent to the preparation of RP #3.2 for the Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion, work will be completed to support the development of the associated US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Environmental Impact Statement to inform both USACE and LA TIG decision-making for the proposed sediment diversion project to restore for injuries resulting from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
