Project Description

The goal of the project is to restore beach, dune, and back-barrier marsh habitats in Louisiana, as well as brown pelicans, terns, skimmers, and gulls to help compensate the public for Spill-related injuries to these habitats and species. The restoration work at each island involves placement of appropriately sized sediments to create beach, dune, and back-barrier marsh areas; installation of sand fencing to trap and retain wind-blown sediments and foster dune development; and revegetation of appropriate native species in dune and back-barrier marsh habitat. Sediment will be pumped from appropriate borrow area locations specific to each island and conveyed to the restoration sites through temporary pipeline corridors.
