COASTAL WETLANDS PLANNING, PROTECTION AND RESTORATION ACT

PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 19-Aug-2019

No Name Bayou Marsh Creation & Nourishment

PROJECT LOCATION:

The project area is located south of Calcasieu Lake in Cameron Parish, approximately two miles north of Cameron, LA. The project is within the Cameron-Creole Watershed Management Area which uses a levee and five large concrete water control structures to manage the unit and protect approximately 64,000 acres from saltwater intrusion.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Marshes in the southwest portion of the Cameron Creole Watershed have converted to open water due to subsidence and saltwater intrusion from the Calcasieu Ship Channel. In addition, hurricanes previously breached the levee, scouring the marsh and increasing salinities. This project would create and nourish approximately 533 acres of open water and saline marsh using sediment mined from a nearby U.S. Army Corps of Engineers confined disposal facility. Approximately 5,000 linear feet of the levee borrow channel would be cleaned out and 10,000 linear feet of tidal creeks and two 2.5 acre ponds will be constructed to help facilitate hydrologic flow of water into and out of project area. In addition, 251 acres of vegetation will be planted in the newly created areas.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 8-Oct-2015 )

Approved for Phase I Engineering and Design in January 2015

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $2,724,524 , which includes $2,724,524 for construction first costs, and $0 and $0 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
