Project Description

This planning effort will conduct strategic restoration planning in the Barataria Basin in Southeast Louisiana. The effort has two phases of planning. The first phase will prepare a strategic restoration plan for the Barataria Basin. Phase 2 will provide further restoration planning for projects identified in Phase 1. Phase 2 includes support of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Environmental Impact Statement to inform decision-making for the Mid-Barataria sediment diversion project. This diversion will be evaluated in Phase 1 and potentially in Phase 2 as an appropriate project for restoring injuries from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
