PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 6-Dec-2019

South Pecan Island Freshwater Introduction DEAUTHORIZED

PROJECT LOCATION:

The project is located in Region 4, Mermentau Basin, Vermilion Parish, South Pecan Island Mapping Unit.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The project would include the deepening of a 7,366 linear ft conveyance channel from White Lake to an existing drainage culvert going under Hwy 82. At Hwy 82, four 48” pipes would be installed to allow freshwater and sediment introduction from White Lake into an existing conveyance channel south of Hwy 82. The existing channel would be excavated approximately 4 ft in a channel with a 25 ft bottom width (40 ft top width). The excavated material would be used to build a 1,264 ft section of bank needed along the northeast portion of the channel, and to refurbish existing banks. An existing plug would be removed. at White Lake. The foreshore rock dike to be constructed by the Corps of Engineers ((ME-22) would be tied into the shoreline with this proposed project. The project would be constructed to allow excess freshwater to drain, while preventing saltwater intrusion into the Lakes Subbasin, by installing flap gates south of Hwy 82. To allow for existing land use practices to continue, a 30” diameter pump will be relocated approximately 7,000 LF north of its current location to drain the Bull Pasture. A second pump would be installed to drain the Green Tract with a bridge to access that pump. Pipe drops would be installed from both the Bull Pasture and Green Tract to continue to allow water level management of those tracts.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 9-Jun-2010 )
