Engineering and/or Construction
Initiate and complete engineering and design of the Mid-Breton Sediment Diversion project in Plaquemine Parish, Louisiana. Once constructed, the sediment diversion is anticipated to convey up to 35,000 cubic feet per second of sediment-rich river water, introducing approximately 70 million tons of new sediment into the Breton Sound Basin over a 50-year projection.
