$2.5M for Wetlands Restoration Projects in Louisiana

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $2.5 million to the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana to improve coastal wetlands in Louisiana.

The project will create 300 acres of barrier marsh and nourish 130 acres of developing marsh near Bayou Moreau using dredged material from the Gulf of Mexico. This project is funded through the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act (CWPPRA).

CWPPRA, enacted in 1990, is designed to identify, prepare, and fund construction of coastal wetlands restoration projects. Over 150 coastal restoration or protection projects have been authorized through the legislation, benefiting over 110,000 acres in Louisiana.
