CWPPRA Proposed Projects for PPL 28


The Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection, and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) Program kicked off its 28th Priority Project List (PPL) on January 30th, January 31st, and February 1st. These Regional Planning Team meetings, held in Grand Chenier, Morgan City, and Lacombe, gave the public the opportunity to nominate projects that restore and protect Louisiana's coastal wetlands. Anyone from the public as well as the State and federal agencies can nominate a project to be included on the PPL. A total of 64 basin projects, 2 coastwide projects, and 4 demonstration projects were proposed. Parish representatives, five federal agencies, and the State will participate in an electronic vote on February 27th where typically 22 projects, including 21 basin projects and 1 coastwide project, and up to 6 demonstration projects are selected to move forward as PPL 28 nominees. The factsheets and presentations from the regional meetings can be viewed here: http://www.mvn.usace.army.mil/Missions/Environmental/CWPPRA/Priority-Project-Lists/

Written comments can be sent to Brad Inman by February 20, 2018 for dissemination to the CWPPRA agencies.
