PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 21-Oct-2019

Bayou Lours Ridge Hydrologic Restoration DEAUTHORIZED

PROJECT LOCATION:

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Bayou L'Ours was historically a distributary of Bayou LaFourche. The natural levees of this bayou created the L'Ours subbasin, which has been breached by access and pipeline canals. The breaches have increased tidal exchange, reduced freshwater retention, and increased salinities in the marshes within the upper subbasin. Plugs will be placed on six canals, and water control structures containing boat bays to accommodate small boat traffic will be installed on two others to restore the hydrologic integrity of the ridge.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 12-Mar-2003 )

The initial step of deauthorization was taken at the January Task Force meeting. The process will be finalized at the April Task Force meeting.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $371,232 , which includes $265,334 for construction first costs, and $105,899 and $0 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
