CWPPRA Priority Project List (PPL 29) Nominees Selected

On Thursday, February 28, 2019, CWPPRA agencies and participating coastal parishes voted to select project nominees for PPL 29. The nominees were selected from the 51 basin projects and 3 coastwide projects proposed during the Regional Planning Team (RPT) meetings held on February 12-February 14, 2019. In addition, one demonstration project was proposed, but after CWPPRA workgroup evaluation prior to the vote, the project was considered ineligible to proceed in the CWPPRA process.

The vote resulted in two projects tied for 4th place in the Barataria Basin. The tied projects will both move forward as PPL 29 nominees. The nominees consist of 21 basin projects and 1 coastwide project.

The PPL 29 nominees will be preliminarily evaluated by the CWPPRA Workgroups and narrowed down at the 11 April 2019 Technical Committee meeting to the PPL 29 candidate projects, which will consist of 10 basin projects (potentially including a coastwide project). Public comment will be solicited at the April Technical Committee meeting prior to the Committee's vote.

Information on the PPL 29 project proposals is available on the web:
