Project Description

This project is a large-scale planning effort based on a partnership between the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It will enhance the science developed under a previous delta management study to form the foundation for any future river management analysis by creating an integrated science-based management strategy for the LMR to improve navigation, reduce flood risk, and provide for a more sustainable deltaic ecosystem.
