COASTAL WETLANDS PLANNING, PROTECTION AND RESTORATION ACT

PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 18-May-2022

White Ditch Outfall Management DEAUTHORIZED

PROJECT LOCATION:

The project is located on the east bank of the Mississippi River near Belair, LA, in Plaquemines Parish.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Construction of the Mississippi River levees has effectively stopped annual flooding of the area by the river, which served to nourish the marshes with sediments, nutrients, and freshwater. This plan proposes to manage the outfall area for wetland creation and enhancement through gapping spoil banks and constricting channels to encourage sediment deposition, freshwater overflow, and nutrient retention in the marsh and increasing the size of ditches to increase freshwater distribution.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 01-Jan-1990 )

LA DNR concurred with NRCS to deauthorize the project. Project deauthorized at the January 16, 1998 Task Force meeting. Deauthorized.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $32,862 , which includes $25,341 for construction first costs, and $7,521 and $0 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
