Caernarvon Diversion Outfall Management

PROJECT LOCATION:

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The primary objective is to enhance marsh by increasing the utilization of freshwater, nutrients, and sediments provided by the Mississippi River through the Caernarvon Freshwater Diversion Structure. The proposed plan is still in the conceptual stages and focuses on the management of the diverted water. Outfall management in Plaquemines Parish would include lengthening the containment levee, constructing earthen dams, and removing elevated spoil banks to direct diversion discharge away from major channels and into the marsh and shallow pond area to the south of Big Mar.
