Initiation of Inactivation Procedures for East Leeville Marsh Creation and Nourishment (BA-194)

The Louisiana Coastal Wetlands Conservation and Restoration Task Force is initiating procedures to inactivate the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection, and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) East Leeville Marsh Creation and Nourishment (BA-194) 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 site conditions, limited program funds, and more cost-effective projects. The project requires additional data collection and funding to sufficiently update the engineering and design to meet original project goals and objectives. Inactivation of the BA-194 project would allow any unused Phase 1 funds to be returned to the CWPPRA program for other use. This 25th Priority Project List project is located in Region 2, within the Barataria Basin portion of Lafourche Parish.

The Task Force will consider the request to inactivate the BA-194 project contingent upon any written comments received. Written comments should be provided by September 17, 2022 to the following address:

Colonel Stephen F. Murphy
District Commander
c/o Sarah Bradley
U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District
7400 Leake Avenue
New Orleans, Louisiana 70118
