Project Description

As part of the Parish Matching Program, the Rockefeller Gulf Shoreline Stabilization Project (Rockefeller) proposed by Cameron Parish Police Jury (CPPJ) is one of six projects selected by the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) for implementation to contribute to the overall economic and ecological recovery of the Gulf Coast. This project will mitigate erosion at the Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge which averages approximately 70 feet/year with a subsequent direct loss of emergent saline marsh. As a continuation of the authorized Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) ME-18 project, which provides 14,854 linear feet (2.81 miles) of reef breakwater from Joseph Harbor westward, Rockefeller will increase the reef breakwater construction by an additional 6,000 linear feet (1.14 miles).
