This wetland project will examine if and how the 10+ years of operation of Davis Pond Freshwater Diversion changed the soil marsh properties of bulk density, organic matter content, and nutrient content that are important to coastal marsh accretion and resilience in Barataria Basin. Data from this research could help inform CPRA about the continued use of large freshwater diversions (Davis Pond and Caernarvon).
