Coastal Connections in Belle Chasse

Staff members from Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) will host their ‘Coastal Connections’ meeting in Belle Chasse today to discuss the Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion Project.

“Come connect with staff members from the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority to learn about what we are doing to tackle this coastal crisis by dredging sediment and reconnecting the Mississippi River to the basins to rebuild the wetlands,” CPRA said in its release.

Restoring the Mississippi River Delta will take large-scale projects that can restore or imitate the river’s natural processes. This involves the reintroduction of fresh water and sediment to the coastal system while preparing for future conditions of the delta ecosystem.

Restoration of a healthy, productive Mississippi River Delta requires implementation and coordination of various strategies working in tandem.

These include reconnecting the river to the delta through land-building sediment diversions, strategic use of dredged sediments to build and sustain wetlands and barrier islands, improved management of the Mississippi River and adopting community resilience measures.
