Officials Tour Coastal Projects in Plaquemines Parish

State and local leaders met on February 4, 2015, to tour several coastal projects in Plaquemines Parish.

The group gathered to discuss coastal restoration’s importance in Plaquemines Parish. They visited some of the New Orleans to Venice (NOV) projects currently under construction in Plaquemines. There was also discussion to attempt to propose the east and west bank levees being placed into the state’s master plan.

The participants then took site tours and boat tours at the Lake Hermitage Marsh Creation project and the Bayou Dupont Sediment Delivery System.

Those in attendance were Plaquemines Parish President, Amos Cormier, Jr.; Coastal Zone Management Director, Vincent Frelich; Land Superintendent, Blair Rittiner; HNTB project engineer, David St. Marie; Chairman of the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana (CPRA), Chip Kline; State Representative, Chris Leopold; Executive Director of CPRA, Kyle Graham; and Deputy Executive Director of CPRA, Jason Lanclos.

Plaquemines Parish had approximately 15 to 20 projects submitted for the update of the CPRA Master Plan that have made the cut for further evaluation in the next phase of the update.
