CWPPRA Priority Project List (PPL 27) Nominees Selected

On Tuesday, March 7, 2017, CWPPRA agencies and participating coastal parishes voted to select project nominees for PPL 27. The nominees were selected from the 52 basin projects, 2 coastwide projects, and 5 demonstration projects proposed during the Regional Planning Team (RPT) meetings held on January 31-February 2, 2017. The vote resulted in two projects tied for 4th place in the Terrebonne Basin and two projects tied for 2nd place in the Calcasieu-Sabine Basin. The tied projects in both basins will move forward as nominees. The PPL 27 nominees consist of 22 basin projects, 1 coastwide project, and 4 demonstration projects.

The PPL 27 project nominees will be preliminarily evaluated by the CWPPRA Workgroups and narrowed down at the 27 April 2017 Technical Committee meeting to the PPL 27 candidate projects, which will consist of 10 basin projects (potentially including a coastwide project) and up to 3 demonstration projects. Public comment will be solicited at the April Technical Committee meeting prior to the Committee's vote.

Information on the PPL 27 project proposals is available on the web: http://www.mvn.usace.army.mil/Missions/Environmental/CWPPRA/PriorityProjectLists.aspx
