USACE Hosts Meetings on Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion

The Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana (CPRA) has applied to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District, for permits and permissions to construct, maintain, and operate the proposed Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion.

To inform these permit decisions, the Corps is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

As part of the process the Corps of Engineers will conduct two public scoping meetings to engage members of the public and other interested parties in the development of the EIS.

The meetings are as follows:

Tuesday, July 25, 2017
Belle Chasse Auditorium
8398 Highway 23
Belle Chasse, LA

Thursday, July 27, 2017
Port Sulphur Community Center Memorial Building
278 Civic Drive
Port Sulphur, LA

The scoping period to provide formal comments for the EIS will extend from July 6 through September 5.
