PUBLIC NOTICE - Little Pecan Bayou Hydrologic Restoration Project De-authorization Initiation
The Louisiana Coastal Wetlands Conservation and Restoration Task Force is initiating procedures to deauthorize the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection, and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) Little Pecan Bayou Hydrologic Restoration Project (ME-17) as requested by the project sponsors based on the projected lack of sufficient wetland benefits to warrant a Phase II request for construction and 20 years of maintenance, plus a concern about public vandalism.
This 9th Priority Project List project was to address hydrologically-stressed marshes north of Louisiana Highway 82 and open water areas with limited freshwater input south of the highway. Project features would have included installation of structural measures designed to reduce marsh salinity levels and allow freshwater conveyance to the open water areas.
Prior to making a final decision, the Task Force will consider written comments on the request to deauthorize the project. Written comments should be provided by September 4, 2012 to the following address:
Colonel Edward R. Fleming
US Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District
Attention: Project Management Branch, CWPPRA Manager
