PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 19-Aug-2019

Delta Management at Fort St. Philip

PROJECT LOCATION:

The project is located in Plaquemines Parish on the east bank of the Mississippi River across from Fort Jackson.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The objective of the project is to enhance the delta-building process occurring as a result of the crevasse at Fort St. Philip. Six artificial crevasses will be constructed to divert fresh water and sediments into areas currently restricted by spoil banks or natural ridges. The crevasses will be maintained during the project life. In addition, linear terraces will be constructed to enhance sediment retention and reduce wave energy in one of the large receiving bays. Vegetative plantings will be installed on the terraces.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 11-Jul-2017 )

This project was completed in 2006. Monitoring is ongoing and no maintenance has been conducted.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $2,383,455 , which includes $1,542,062 for construction first costs, and $341,972 and $499,421 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
