The purpose of the Barataria Marsh Creation & Ridge Restoration project is to design and construct an efficient sediment delivery pipeline system from a renewable resource in the Mississippi River to strategic locations within the Lafourche Parish portion of the Barataria Basin. The project will provide the means to re-establish emergent wetlands using a sustainable sediment source in an area where sediment is limited. The project will also provide a synergistic effect with previously constructed restoration projects in the area such as receiving nourishment from the Davis Pond Freshwater Diversion. This project will begin engineering, design and permitting activities to advance the project toward implementation. The objectives are to analyze existing information and determine data gaps, review data needed to begin initial permitting activities, and develop a preliminary project design.
