The Louisiana Coastal Wetlands Conservation and Restoration Task Force is initiating procedures to deauthorize the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection, and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) Shoreline Protection, Preservation, and Restoration Panel (LA-0280) demonstration project as requested by the Federal project sponsor, the National Marine Fisheries Service, and the local project sponsor, the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, due to a project cost increase of 59%. Deauthorization of the LA-0280 project would allow any unused Phase 1 funds to be returned to the CWPPRA program for other use.

The Task Force will consider the request to deauthorize the LA-0280 project contingent upon any written comments received. Written comments should be provided by December 14, 2018 to the following address:

Colonel Michael N. Clancy
District Commander
U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District
7400 Leake Avenue
New Orleans, Louisiana 70118

If you need further information, please contact Mr. Mark Wingate, Deputy District Engineer for Project Management, at (504) 862-2204 or Mr. Brad Inman, Chief of Projects and Restoration Branch, at (504) 862-2124.
