PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 21-Oct-2019

Freshwater Bayou Bank Stabilization

PROJECT LOCATION:

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

A continuous rock dike will be constructed approximately 100 feet from the existing shoreline to prevent Freshwater Bayou Channel from eroding into the intermediate marshes in the 1,370 managed area to the west of the channel; it will prevent uncontrolled tidal flux and saltwater intrusion into this area, and will trap sediment behind the rock dike and rebuild the marsh area that has been lost. A major objective of this project is to protect the integrity of the Mermentau River basin, by preventing interior ditches from connecting Freshwater Bayou to the Old Intracoastal Canal.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 1-Jan-1990 )

The local cost share is being paid by Acadian Gas Company.

Contract was awarded January 14, 1998. Construction is complete.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $5,547,666 , which includes $1,911,055 for construction first costs, and $56,748 and $3,579,863 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
