Brady Canal Hydrologic Restoration

PROJECT LOCATION:

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The objective of the project is to maintain the fragile, highly-fragmented transitional marshes between the fresh and estuarine zones by enhancing freshwater, sediment, and nutrient delivery into the area. The project will promote freshwater flow from Bayou Penchant into a fresh/intermediate marsh that encompasses the western-most segment of the Mauvais Bois ridge. Tidal scouring and rapid water exchange rates will be reduced by decreasing the cross-sectional areas of natural and man-made outlets and by maintaining the banks along Bayou De Cade, Turtle Bayou, and Superior Canal. These measures will also promote greater freshwater and sediment retention for increased marsh productivity.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 24-Sep-2002 )

Project delayed because of landowner concerns about permit conditions regarding monitoring, and objection from a pipeline company in the area. In addition, CSA revisions were needed to accommodate the landowner's interest in providing non-Federal funding. Permitting and design conditions have resulted in the CSA being modified to also include Fina Oil Co. and LL&E. Both will help cost share the project. The revised CSA is complete. Construction project is complete. O&M plan signed July 16, 2002.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $7,352,678 , which includes $2,851,182 for construction first costs, and $1,084,338 and $3,417,158 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
