PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The project intends to return the 2,400 acre impoundment created for spoil containment to fisheries habitat by restoring tidal exchange and to lower mean water level, providing for ingress and egress and enhancing conditions for growth and vegetation. The projects includes placement of two 48-inch diameter culverts beneath the shell road along the northern perimeter. Shell armoring of levee side slope adjacent to the culverts will be required to prevent scouring.

In a meeting on October 7, 1993, Port Fourchon conveyed to NMFS personnel that any additional work in the project area could be conducted by the Port and they did not wish to see the project pursued because they question its benefits and are concerned that undesired Government / general public involvement would result after implementation.

Deauthorized.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $7,703 , which includes $7,340 for construction first costs, and $363 and $0 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
