Cheniere au Tigre Sediment Trapping DEMO

PROJECT LOCATION:

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The objective of the project is to field test a conceptual device designed to trap sediment from the gulf tides, stabilize the on-going erosion on Cheniere au Tigre and build up portions of the coastline that have already eroded away. The success of the project will be gaged by the device perfoming to effectively reduce wave energies and significantly reduce or reverse erosion; have as few limitations as possible with regard to installation, cost, longevity, sediment trapping properties, site accessability, and risk failure and uncertainties; and effectively traps and retain sediment from the gulf coast wave action.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 22-Mar-2002 )

A request for proposals was advertised in Feb 2000. No valid proposals received. Proceeding with design of a rock structure. Project advertised for bid. Bid came in over estimate. LDNR and NRCS shifted funds from monitoring to construction. Delay in getting new obligation due to internal COE procedures. Government order received July 13, 2001. Construction complete.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $624,999 , which includes $545,710 for construction first costs, and $54,487 and $24,802 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
