PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 14-Jun-2019

West Lake Boudreaux Shoreline Protection& Marsh Creation

PROJECT LOCATION:

The project is located in the Terrebonne Basin along the western shoreline of Lake Boudreaux in Terrebonne Parish, LA. The project is south of Bayou Butler and east of Hwy 57.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The project area includes 1,177 acres including 250 acres of marsh and 927 acres of open water. The western shoreline of Lake Boudreaux helps protect the interior low salinity marshes and aquatic grass beds from the high wave energy and turbidity found in Lake Boudreaux. This project is necessary to protect the shoreline from further erosion due to direct exposure to lake wave energies and to restore interior marsh lost from subsidence and saltwater intrusion. Project features consist of the following: 1) Construct 11,644 linear feet of shoreline protection in two sections along the western shoreline of Lake Boudreaux. The structure will be built in 2 to 3.5 feet of water and between 0 to 100 feet from shore. A gap, approximately 100 feet wide, would be left open for fish access; 2) Lake-bottom sediments would be hydraulically dredged to create 124 acres of marsh; 3) Construct one earthen plug to reduce water exchange between Lake Boudreaux and marsh located in the northern portion of the project area;

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 14-Apr-2016 )

Annual inspection was completed on this project on 4/2016.
All project features seem to be in good working condition with the exception of some damage to several signs.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $17,753,003 , which includes $15,878,195 for construction first costs, and $183,854 and $1,690,954 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
