PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 01-Mar-2021

Oaks/Avery Canal Hydrologic Restoration

PROJECT LOCATION:

The project is located in northeast Vermilion Bay in both Vermilion and Iberia Parishes.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Marsh loss is due to increased tidal actions and altered hydrology. The north shoreline of Vermilon Bay is eroding at a rate of 7-12 feet per year, and marine traffic is causing bankline erosion along the GIWW. The objective of the project is to improve hydrology, reduce tidal fluctuation to minimize marsh loss, and provide protection to critically eroding bankline and shoreline area.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 17-Apr-2012 )

O&M plan was finalized on 2/11/04.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $3,435,690 , which includes $1,928,516 for construction first costs, and $673,700 and $833,474 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
