PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 30-Apr-2020

Delta Building Diversion at Myrtle Grove TRANSFER

PROJECT LOCATION:

The project is in the vicinity of the cities of Myrtle Grove and ironton in Plaquemines Parish, LA.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Project concept involves the diversion of Mississippi River water and sediment for the creation of new emergent wetlands. The alternatives studies under the MRSNFR study involved diversions of 15,000 and 5,000 dfs.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 11-Jul-2002 )

The proposed NMFS/UNO fisheries modeling effort, and its relationship to required EIS input, has been discussed by the principal agencies involved with this project. The current view within the management team is that additional fisheries data collection and analysis will be required over and above the proposed modeling. At this time, it has been decided to begin assembling an inter-agency EIS team and allow them to outline major data and analytic requirements for the NEPA document. The required NEPA scoping meetings have been held and the scoping document is being compliled. An initial Value Engineering study is scheduled for the week of July 22, 2002.

WRDA may fund Phase 2.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $2,543,325 , which includes $2,543,325 for construction first costs, and $0 and $0 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
