Lost Lake Marsh Creation and Hydrologic Restoration

PROJECT LOCATION:

This project is located in western Terrebonne Parish in the vicinity of Lost Lake.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Approximately 465 acres of marsh will be created between Lake Pagie and Bayou DeCade, north of Bayou DeCade, and along the northwestern Lost Lake shoreline. Borrow material will be taken from within Lost Lake and pumped via a hydraulic dredge into the marsh creation sites. In addition, 30,000 linear feet (26 acres) of terraces will be constructed to reduce fetch in an area of deteriorated marsh north of Bayou DeCade. Fixed-crest weirs along Carencro Bayou and Little Carencro Bayou will be replaced with variable-crest structures to increase freshwater and sediment delivery into project area marshes.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 22-Apr-2019 )

Construction was completed on November 30, 2018. The construction contract has been closed and the project will be entering the O&M phase.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $31,531,382 , which includes $31,136,499 for construction first costs, and $195,993 and $198,890 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
