PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 19-Aug-2019

Plowed Terraces Demo COMPLETE

PROJECT LOCATION:

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

This project will develop and demonstrate a non-traditional procedure for constructing earthen terraces in shallow open water areas. Thirty-eight earthen terraces will serve as wave-stilling, sediment-trapping structures and provide a medium base for the establishment of emergent vegetation. If successful, this technique will provide a less expensive method of constructing earthen terraces than the traditional method using excavation equipment and its consequent borrow channels.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 11-Dec-2001 )

Project initially put on hold pending results of an earlier terraces demonstration project being paid for by the Gulf of Mexico program. The first attempt to plow the terraces in the summer of 1999 was not successful. A second contract was advertised in January 2000 to try again. Construction is complete.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $324,970 , which includes $280,216 for construction first costs, and $41,424 and $3,330 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
