PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 21-Oct-2019

Black Bayou Hydrologic Restoration

PROJECT LOCATION:

The project is located in Cameron and Calcasieu parishes, bordered by the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW), Sabine Lake and Gum Cove Ridge.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The project area has suffered wetland loss due to hydrologic changes, including reduced freshwater flow, increased tidal fluctuations, increased salinities, high water levels, excessive water exchange, and artificial water circulation patterns. The objective is to divert freshwater from the GIWW and create a hydrologic head that maximizes freshwater rettention time and reduces saltwater intrusion and tidal action.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 29-Apr-2011 )

An O&M inspection is scheduled for 5-04-11.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $12,462,252 , which includes $4,515,292 for construction first costs, and $838,934 and $7,108,026 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
