CPRA Releases First Final Restoration Plan

Louisiana’s Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA), along with the other state and federal agencies of the Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group, announced last week the release of its “Final Restoration Plan #1”.

The plan selects restoration projects that will continue to address injuries to the natural resources in Louisiana caused by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

This is the first Louisiana natural resource restoration plan to be released since the Natural Resource Damage Assessment settlement was approved on April 4, 2016.

The final restoration plan allocates $22.3 million in Deepwater Horizon settlement funds to advance engineering and design on six coastal restoration projects intended to restore for damages to Louisiana wetlands, coastal, and nearshore habitats; in addition to habitat on federally managed lands; and bird habitat:

  • Terrebonne Basin Ridge and Marsh Creation Project: Bayou Terrebonne Increment;
  • Barataria Basin Ridge and Marsh Creation Project: Spanish Pass Increment;
  • Lake Borgne Marsh Creation Project: Increment One;
  • Shoreline Protection at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve;
  • Queen Bess Island Restoration Project;
  • Rabbit Island Restoration Project.
