Project Description

The LA TIG is utilizing restoration planning funds to develop and finalize the second phase of restoration planning for the ?Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group Final Restoration Plan #1: Restoration of Wetlands, Coastal, and Nearshore Habitats; Habitat Projects on Federally Managed Lands; and Birds? (Phase I Plan). The Phase I plan was prepared to inform the public about DWH NRDA restoration planning efforts and to select six restoration projects for engineering and design. The tiered, second phase restoration plan or plans will further evaluate these projects to determine whether the projects should proceed to construction. The LA TIG Restoration Plan 1 (Phase I) selected six restoration projects to proceed with engineering and design activities. The Phase I restoration plan was developed with LA TIG Administrative and Oversight funds, and the Plan does not have separate tracking. This Phase II plan evaluates the design alternatives for construction, and will be tracked as a separate initiative. Implementation is tracked separately for each of the six resulting projects, which includes: * Shoreline Protection at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve * Terrebonne Basin Ridge and March Creation Project: Bayou Terrebone Increment * Barataria Basin Ridge and Marsh Creation Project: Spanish Pass Increment * Lake Borgne Marsh Creation Project: Increment One * Queen Bess Island Restoration Project * Rabbit Island Restoration Project
