PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 12-Aug-2022

Pass Chaland to Grand Bayou Pass Barrier Shoreline Restoration

PROJECT LOCATION:

The project is located in Region 2, in Barataria Basin, between Pass Chaland and Grand Bayou Pass.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The goals of the project are to prevent breaching of the barrier shoreline by increasing its width, and to create approximately 226 acres of back barrier marshes. Conceptual project features include creation of a marsh platform approximately 1,000 feet immediately adjacent to and contiguous with the existing gulf shoreline. Additionally, creation of tidal creeks and ponds and vegetative plantings are planned.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 06-Jul-2012 )

Annual site inspection conducted June 27, 2012. Sand fencing appears largely intact and functional. Sand accretion around fencing and dune plantings observed. The marsh creation area and associated containment dikes were also inspected. Major portions of the marsh platform appear to be regularly flooded by tides and has about 50% to 60% vegetative cover. Marsh fill containment dikes were inspected to determine need for mechanical gapping to provide tidal exchange. Based on observed settlement and formation of natural gaps, it was determined that dike gapping/degradation is not required.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $40,260,888 , which includes $37,014,443 for construction first costs, and $484,076 and $2,762,369 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
