LA Restoration Projects Finished

Nearly fifty people gathered to celebrate completion of three coastal restoration projects two days ago at the Falgout Canal Marina in Theriot. 

Ducks Unlimited, ConocoPhillips, Apache Louisiana Minerals LLC, the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority and the North American Wetlands Conservation Council restored more than 2,500 coastal acres through the Liner Canal, Carencro Bayou and Lost Lake projects.

The Liner Canal project was on the parish’s desired list for several years, but a lack of funding delayed implementation efforts.

Funded by grants from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, ConocoPhillips and the state of Louisiana, the Carencro Bayou freshwater introduction project restored freshwater and sediment inputs to more than 1,500 acres of coastal marsh in Terrebonne Parish.

The Lost Lake project created a living shoreline using wave attenuation devices (WADs) designed by Living Shoreline Solutions and fabricated by Lowland Construction Company.

The WADs create a shoreline protection feature that can be moved and reused once the eroding coastal marsh stabilizes and fills in behind the structure.

Placement of the 423 concrete structures was completed this summer. This erosion control project is part of Ducks Unlimited’s ongoing effort to conserve coastal marsh for mottled ducks and migrating waterfowl.
