Louisiana’s Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) recently announced the four winning teams to provide restoration planning and environmental compliance consulting services to the State of Louisiana. In partnership with C.H. Fenstermaker & Associates, LLC, we are pleased to be part of the winning GHD Team. In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the GHD Team will prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to disclose and analyze all significant environmental impacts of CPRA’s proposed action to place a sediment diversion through a portion of the federal Mississippi River and Tributaries Project mainline levee on the left descending bank of the Mississippi River near River Mile 68, extending into the Breton Sound Basin in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. This action is proposed to reconnect and reestablish the deltaic sediment deposition process between the Mississippi River and Breton Sound Basin to deliver sediment, freshwater, and nutrients to reduce land loss rates and sustain wetlands. This three-year contract is the first of its kind for the State of Louisiana.
