The Louisiana Coastal Wetlands Conservation and Restoration Task Force is initiating procedures to transfer the Shell Beach South Marsh Creation (PO-168) project from the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection, and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) Program to the Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group (LATIG) Final Restoration Plan #1 as part of the Deep Water Horizon Natural Resource Damage Assessment settlement. This transfer is being considered based on the request from the PO-168 Federal Sponsor, per their letter of September 12, 2017 and with concurrence of the project’s Local sponsor, the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana. The PO-168 project is completely within the boundaries of the larger Lake Borgne Marsh Creation Increment 1 component of the LATIG Final Restoration Plan #1. Transfer of the PO-168 project from the CWPPRA to LATIG allows any unused CWPPRA funds to be returned to the CWPPRA program for other use. The PO-168 project, from CWPPRA’s 24th Priority Project List, is located in St. Bernard Parish in the vicinity of Shell Beach on the north bank of the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet.

The Task Force will consider the request to transfer the PO-168 project contingent upon any written comments received. Written comments should be provided by December 7, 2017 to the following address:

Colonel Michael N. Clancy
District Commander
U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District
Projects and Restoration Branch, CWPPRA Program Manager
7400 Leake Avenue
New Orleans, Louisiana 70118
