Engineering and/or Construction
Complete the engineering and design of the Mid-Barataria sediment diversion. Once constructed, the diversion is anticipated to convey up to 75,000 cubic feet per second of sediment-rich river water, introducing approximately 150 million tons of new sediment into Barataria Basin over a 50-year projection.
